Kids + dogs = a great reading opportunity

DogWithChildren bykatcsendElementary-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. on Thursdays.

Dates in March for the reading sessions are March 2, 9, 16 and 23.

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.
