BARK-9 Program Helps Southern Tier Kids Read

Reading and communication can be a challenge for some area youth.  The Books and Reading Canine (BARK-9) program helps to improve children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful proven method, reading to a dog.

BARK-9 uses registered therapy animals who have been trained for health, safety and temperament.

Now we all know dogs can’t read but they can be great listeners, and their presence creates an inviting and motivating environment for children who are trying to read and communicate in a relaxed, safe, non-judgmental and fun environment.

The Broome County Public Library will host the Books and Reading Canine program from 10:00am-Noon on the following Saturdays this winter:  January 25, February 8, 22, March 8,22.

No registration is necessary for this program but if you have questions, please contact the Library’s Youth Services Department at (607) 778-6456 or by email at BCPLyouthservices@gmail.com.
