Dogs help with reading skills

Continue reading below

The town’s library is holding a Paws to Read program each month, and the next sessions are scheduled for Saturday, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and April 4, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. The program, aimed at children in grades 2 through 6, invites library visitors to read to various dogs, which have been through training, testing, and an orientation program with their owners. Children must be able to read by themselves to take advantage of this opportunity to practice reading skills with an attentive canine listener. Registration is required; to sign up or for more information, visit the library’s circulation desk or call Lorie Brownell at 508-533-3217. - Rachel Lebeaux
