I went to the library often when I was a kid. of course I did! we didn’t have computers or hi-tech stuff. These days, it’s a chore to teach kids to appreciate the resources a library has. To meet the challenge, the Broome County Library has paired man’s best friend with books.

The Books and Reading Canine program (BARK-9)allows kids to read to dogs and helps the kids get comfortable with reading. Let’s face it, dogs are not only cute but they’re great listeners. They also tend to help the kids feel safe and relaxed. Dogs are the perfect reading partner!

Your child or grandchild can take part in BARK-9 at the Broome County Library and strengthen their reading skills.The library hosts the program on April 20th, May 4th and may 18th from 10 am to noon. Registration isn’t required, but if you want more information, call the library at 778-6456.
