Wag a Tale at the Library is a program designed for children of all ages to read aloud to dogs.  The dogs are trained to sit and listen to the stories.  Children who have a hard time reading in front of people build confidence in this non-threatening and stress free environment.  The dogs are non-judgmental and accept the stories exactly as they are read.  Children can improve reading skills and boost their self-esteem to become motivated, successful readers.
