Waggin’ Tales at the Loveland, Colorado Public Library
Join the Loveland Public Library on Saturday, January 4th for Waggin’ Tales!
Waggin’ Tales is a regular program at the Loveland library that allows individuals of all ages to read to registered therapy dogs. In addition to being lots of fun, this program has many benefits. It allows children to practice reading in a safe environment without fear of being judged by others. This environment is especially beneficial to children who are struggling to master reading.
This program also gives children the opportunity to spend time with man’s best friend. Many children naturally love animals (dogs in particular) and would jump opportunity to spend time with them. However, for children that are uncomfortable around dogs, Waggin’ Tales provides the chance to get familiar with dogs that are known to be calm and reliable.
Waggin’ Tales is open to individuals of all ages and is completely free. Children may bring their favorite book from home or choose a book from the library.
The program is held at the Loveland Library at 300 North Adams from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. While the program is free, there is limited space so signing up is required. To sign up, visit the Loveland Public Library’s children’s desk up to 30 minutes before the start of the program (January 4th). Availability is on a first come, first served basis.
