The Brownsville Public Library is excited to begin offering a Reading Education Assistance Dog (R.E.A.D.) program for children. This program is made possible through Healing Paws, Inc located in Fond du Lac. Healing Paws is a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of children and adults in special circumstances, through safe therapeutic interaction with dogs and cats.

Studies have shown that reading to therapy animals helps children relax, increases their interest in reading, and improves their reading skills. Handlers and their dogs will work with individual children on a one-on-one basis for about fifteen minutes each.

The first program will be held at the library on Tuesday, Oct. 8 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Based upon participation, the program will tentatively continue to be held the second Tuesday of each month at the same time. Children may stop in anytime during the hour and choose library books to read or bring a book from home to read to the dog.

This library program is free and open to the public. For further information contact the library at 583-4325. Library hours: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 1-7; Wednesday and Friday 3-6; and Saturdays 10-12 (September-May; closed in summer). The website is www.brownsville.lib.wi.us
