Read to a Dog!

5:30 PM – 5:45 PM
El Cerrito


El Cerrito Library welcomes your beginning reader to join us and a licensed therapy dog for a 15-minute reading session every other Tuesday evening. This program is designed for young folks who can read on their own but could benefit from the patience and comfort of a canine companion from the Alliance of Therapy Dogs.

Spaces are limited, so we do request that readers only sign up for one slot per evening. Advance registration is required for each 15-minute reading session. You may sign up on the library's website or by calling the El Cerrito Library at 510-526-7512.

To ensure that each reader gets the best experience, we ask that you keep the following in mind during your session:

  • Pet your dog and say hello! Your furry, four-legged dog friend can't wait to listen to you read to them.
  • Be on time and stay with your dog for the full 15-minute session. They want to give you their full attention!
  • When the rain stick shakes, it’s time to say good-bye!
