Library hosts PAWS Reading Saturdays


Submitted story



MECHANICSBURG – For 16 years, Mechanicsburg Public Library has provided a safe, comfortable and fun way for children to gain confidence in their reading skills by reading aloud to a certified therapy dog. At PAWS for Reading, young readers can curl up in a gigantic cozy “dog house” with a dog who loves listening to children read. The library’s partnership with the volunteer members of DOGTORS Animal Assisted Therapy from Springfield provides exceptional “listening” animals.

PAWS Reading Saturdays are April 6 and April 20, with time slots at 9:30, 10 and 10:30 a.m. Choose the best reading time slot; registration is required to reserve that time. The schedule fills up quickly, but the library will maintain a waiting list. The library will furnish books or bring your own favorite books.
