Read to a therapy dog in our weekly series

ReadingDogElementary-school age children are invited to make a new friend and work on their reading at Norman Public Library West's "Sit! Stay! Read!" program for reading to therapy dogs, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. each Thursday during January.

Program dates for the month are Jan. 5, 12, 19 and 26.

The goal of the program is helping reluctant readers to practice their reading skills in a low-stress, non-judgmental environment. Children ages 11 and under are invited to participate.

Registration is not required in advance.
