Reading dogs are special friends that always love to hear stories. They don't care how you read, just as long as you are doing your best and having fun!
Visit Sterling (front), Maggie, and Magic (back) at the Millhopper Library on Thursdays at 3:30 PM These pups are all certified therapy dogs. They are sweet and gentle and love to listen.
