Read aloud to a loving canine listener. The Reading with Rover program helps kids strengthen reading skills and improve reading confidence. For school-age children with a caregiver.

Join us on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Langley Library and on the 4th Wednesday of each month at the Freeland Library. Reading to a dog helps children in many ways. Dogs help to create a safe, non-judgmental experience, which studies show reduces anxiety, anger, and depression. At the same time, increased self-confidence and self-esteem create a sense of pride and motivation to read independently.  Kids LOVE reading to our dogs!

This is a free program. Reading with Rover™ is a therapy dog program serving the community of the Puget Sound. Reading with Rover is a registered 501(C)3 non-profit organization.
