Afternoon Reading Fun (ARF!) is a program for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Children can come to the library to read to a therapy dog trained to listen quietly without correcting or judging. This is especially beneficial to students who are struggling with reading.

Students read one-on-one with the therapy dog without being interrupted by parents, siblings or other adults.
