Program Description

Event Details

PAWS and Read with therapy dogs from Dog Training Elite here in Des Moines. We will also have supplies to make a DIY braided dog toy, while supplies last. 

Reading to trained therapy pets can help build self-esteem, offers children a non-judgmental audience to build skills, confidence, and kids get to practice reading out loud.



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact the library.

Children’s Program

Children under 10 years old must be accompanied by a caregiver over 12 years old.
