Bow-wow Pow-wow

Do you have a child who loves spending time with animals? Is your child afraid to read out loud? If you answered yes, then we have just the program for you.

Join members of Therapy Dog International and The Hayner Public Library District for our Bow-wow Pow-wow Reading Program. The program enables children of all ages to read an age-appropriate short story of their choice to a certified pet therapy dog.

The intent of the program is to make reading fun and boost the child’s confidence in reading out loud. As word of the success of this program has spread, we’ve been contacted by libraries as far away as Colorado and North Carolina interested in starting their own reading programs.

Parents interested in starting their child in this program should contact The Hayner Public Library District. Call 462-0677 and ask how you can pre-register for some special reading time with a therapy dog. Be sure to bring your camera to record your child having a doggone good time!
