Spring Reading Finale featuring K9 TheraPets of Hawaii volunteers and their therapy dogs April 1, 2017

Join us for the finale to our “Fetch a Good Book” keiki Spring Reading Program.  Volunteers from K9 TheraPets of Hawaii will teach children (and their parents) what steps to take when greeting a dog.  Besides being incredibly adorable, all furry wet-nosed quadrupeds in this program are registered therapy dogs with the national Alliance of Therapy Dogs.  A meet and greet session will follow the presentation.

These volunteers visit hospitals, nursing homes, libraries, schools and facilities where interaction with their dogs provide a beneficial “therapeutic contact” for people.

Program schedule is subject to change.  Contact library staff 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.
