Join us and read books to dogs! If you don't read yet, a parent can read or you can look at the pictures and tell the dog a story. BARK is an all-volunteer program that encourages children to increase their reading skills and self-confidence by reading aloud to certified therapy dogs. Studies show that reading to these dogs actually leads to improvement in reading skills! All dogs are trained to work with children, and the owner is present at all times. All ages welcome.
