Every Thursday in the summer children in Wichita Falls can sit back and relax with a pup while reading over at the library.
It is called the Tales for Tails program, which runs from 2-3 p.m. and is free for families.
For some kids it is just a fun environment for reading, while for others it helps them de-stress when it comes to picking up a book.
“A lot of kids though, especially when you’re dealing with a reluctant reader or a child that doesn’t have a lot of confidence in your reading ability, the dog has no judgment,” head of youth services, Susan Cooper, said. “So they can mess up a word. They can nix a word They can stir things up. They can take a little time to get through a page.”
The summer program ends on the last Thursday in July.
