Patron Story: A Boy, Dogs & Books

BranchesLesson learned: the more ruff the reading, the less rough the reading.

Daniel Deindorfer was not yet in kindergarten when he and his mom visited the Cascade Township branch and saw the dogs. More specifically, dogs lounging on blankets in quiet corners of the library, seemingly all-ears as they were being read to by children.

One look at that, said his mother, and dog-lover Daniel was in. The summers of 2006 and 2007, Daniel was signed up every chance he could to read to West Michigan Therapy Dogs Inc. through the Ruff Readers programs at the Cascade and Englehardt branches.
