Reading to a Dog is Delightful! Everyone who wants to will have an opportunity to read with a dog trained to listen to children reading. All dogs come with trained volunteers. Any person who is afraid of dogs will be asked to sit in another part of the library for the hour during which the program is taking place. The Beach Animals Reading with Kids is a nonprofit organization and all programs are free to the library. Please call for more information 323-957-4550. Sign ups are encouraged one week in advance.
