Hey Kids: Register for Ruff Readers Today!

Does your child love to read or need encouragement? Did you know dogs love to be read to?

KDL has teamed up with the West Michigan Therapy Dog Association at the branches listed below for a fun read-aloud program that pairs kids ages 6 and older with a trained therapy dog and handler. Each participant will get to read aloud to a dog for up to 15 minutes. Registration is required. Kids will be scheduled for a specific time slot as they arrive.
