Could your child use a helping paw with reading? Or does he or she just love dogs? Reading aloud to a dog creates a relaxed, non-judgmental environment that helps children develop their reading skills and builds confidence.  And it’s a lot of fun, too!  All ages! Drop-in program, no registration required.  Free and open to the public.  For more information, please call 706-769-3950 or visit
