Dogs are not only man’s best friend but are also helping children appreciate the importance of reading. The Door County Library has reader dogs at three different branch locations during the summer. Youth Services Librarian Beth Lokken says the therapy dogs make a big impact on children’s reading skills.
The Sister Bay Library has “Amos” coming in every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. The Sturgeon Bay Library features “Barley”, “Mocha” or “Igloo” on Thursdays afternoons at 4 p.m. while “Nellie Bly” an intrepid is at Ephraim Library once a month during the summer. You can find more information about the Reader Dog program at the Door County Library with the link below.
