Bedford Library Goes to the Dogs!

READ2Rover is a program that encourages children to read by providing a nonjudgemental listener and furry friend to read to. Dogs won't laugh at them if they make a mistake or stumble over a word, but rather sit next to them and enjoy being read to. This relationship between child and dog enables the child to gain a positive attitude about reading, improves reading skills, builds confidence, and the enjoyment of reading. Registration is requried for this free program. Call 817-952-2372 to register.

Sunday, September 27
Sunday, October 25

Time: 1:30-3:00pm

Dogs will be provided by Heart of Texas Therapy Dogs. Bedford's visiting dogs will be Jake, Mocha and Paisley who is pictured above.
