Therapy Tails

Therapy Tails visit the Thorold Public Library on the first Saturday of every month from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the children’s reading circle.  Animal reading buddies foster basic social skills and confidence in young readers. The unconditional support of a canine companion allows for a safe and nonjudgmental environment in which children get excited about learning and grow their love of reading.  There is no cost to participate in this program.
