Library Events & Programs - Bark for Books Helper

Reading aloud can be RUFF for kids. 

Bark for Books provides an opportunity for children to read to a service dog to build confidence in their skills. Volunteers will help check in participants, monitor the schedule, and may even recruit children in the Family area if the dog has any free time.

No advance training is necessary.

If this is your first time volunteering for our branch, please e-mail Brenda MacIntosh, to schedule a time for a brief orientation.

If you need to cancel, please do so at least 4 days in advance to allow us time to find another volunteer to fill this important spot.


Qualifications Required

  • What is your age range? Must be at least 14 years or older
