I am happy to announce that for the first time in several years, Dogs and Tales will continue through the summer! For those of you who don't know about it, this great program offers beginning readers through 5th graders a chance to practice reading aloud to certified therapy dogs. They can stretch their reading wings in a relaxed, non-judgmental environment, developing skills and building confidence.
The program is offered on Wednesday evenings between 6 and 7:30 p.m., beginning June 18. You may register for this first session as early as May 28. Every session after that, you may register 2 weeks in advance. Visit or call the Children's Desk at 503-718-2673 to register your child.
