1. Summer 2020 Update

    Due to the COVID-19 closure, there are no in-person events or programs at the Lafayette Library. Visit our calendar for virtual events, find book recommendations on our Books & Beyond Blog, or in our catalog, use our online library, or view all service updates and resources.

Overview

This fantastic program gives kids aged 5-10 the opportunity to sit and enjoy books with a non-judgmental, patient, and non-verbal canine companion. Kids read aloud to a trained, gentle, therapy dog and its owner. Occasionally the volunteer might assist the reading child with a difficult word, but for the most part their role will be to just sit with the dog and the child. Kids may bring books from home or use the Library’s books.
