Summer School and R.E.A.D.

This month, BARCC teams will be in two cities for Summer School, giving children a chance to read to one of our dogs.

This week, 6 teams will share the opportunity to visit Mayville Middle School for the Reading Education Assistance Dogs program.  The children have turned their permission slips and today, we saw 18 sweet, excited children walk through the Library door to read to a special dog.  On Tuesdays, we will see 18 more children so that everyone has a chance to read at least once a week.

The R.E.A.D. program is also beginning in Juneau this week.  More details to follow…
