Paws to Read at Mentor Public Library

Registration begins Jan. 10 for Paws to Read, set for 7 p.m. Jan. 19 at Mentor Public Library, 8215 Mentor Ave. Kids who are able to read independently are invited to sign up for a 30-minute session. We'll pair you with a gentle dog who is licensed and trained to be a good listener. Details: or 440-255-8811, ext. 220.

Kids who struggle to read can feel encouraged when reading to dogs, who won't criticize them when they struggle through words. Consider taking this opportunity to help your child read if he or she has been having trouble, or doesn't like to read.
