Read to the Dogs” – a weekly event that is part of the Northumberland Public Library’s Summer Reading Program – wraps up for 2015 with its final session on Tuesday August 25.
Children of any age may come in with a book in hand from 10 to 11 a.m. and read aloud for 10 minutes or so to a docile dog. Library books also may be used. Dog handlers will read aloud to non-readers who want to share in the fun. The free program, which made its debut last summer, began August 4.
Previous “Read to the Dogs” events were held in the library from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Tuesday August 4, 11, and 18. The library is located at 7204 Northumberland Highway, Heathsville, VA 22473. Questions? Call the library at (804) 580-5051 for more information.
