The Cumberland Library Children’s Department welcomes many special Professional Pet Assisted Therapy Dog teams for a heartwarming reading series this summer!  Come to the library, grab a book, curl up with a dog and read!
By reading to a calm and friendly dog, children will enhance their love of reading.
These Professional Pet Assisted Therapy Teams are Windwalker credentialed and graduates of the DJ PPAT certificate course from CCRI.

Space is limited! Children ages 4-10 may sign up for one 15 minute session per week. Sessions will be held Thursdays, July 11 through August 8, 2013
from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Participants will bring their favorite book or select one from the library collection to share with their  therapy dog!

Registration begins Monday, July 1, 2013 in the Children’s Room of the Cumberland Library.
Register early to get your preferred times and dates.
Please bring your library card with you when registering.
This program is limited to children who reside in Cumberland. For more information, please telephone the Children’s Room at 333-2552, x3.
