Come and read to animals

I Read To Animals is a unique program that is being offered for the first time at the Longview Public Library in 2011. During the program, elementary-age children will attend four weekly sessions that cover various topics on animals and animal care. They will also “adopt” a stuffed animal to read books to at home.
After the 30 minute educational program participants will spend time reading to live animals provided by the Humane Society of Northeast Texas.
The I Read To Animals program was made possible by a grant received from the Texas State Library. The program is very effective at helping children to practice reading by alleviating the fear and embarrassment that is often associated with reading aloud in a classroom.  Animals are friendly, patient listeners and can be great confidence builders.
The Cheap Alli Online Without Prescription first session of the I Read To Animals program begins on Thursday, January 6 from 3:30-5:00pm at the library. Three additional sessions are planned for later in 2011. Space is limited so please register as soon as possible. For more information or to register, stop by the library or call Miss Monica at 903-237-1027.
