Children who are in kindergarten or above are welcome to participate in a unique literacy program with a therapy dog certified by The Bright & Beautiful Therapy Dogs, Inc. Reading to a therapy dog in a stress free environment has been found to help children gain reading fluency, comprehension and most of all, confidence!
R.U.F.F. (Reading Uniquely for Fundamentals) is held on Monday evenings from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Each session is 15 minutes, and you may only sign up for one session per night. Reading material should be something your child has read before, and can be either brought from home, or chosen at the library.
The next sessions will be held on February 27. To register, please contact the Children’s Services desk @ 973-728-2823 or email Miss Theresa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
