Paws for Reading - Term 2 2018

Read to a furry friend!

Is your child shy or reluctant about reading? Do they need to gain confidence in reading aloud? Reading to a gentle and patient furry friend can help. Selwyn District Libraries are partnering with members of the Selwyn Dog Training Club to offer Paws for Reading. Book your child in to spend fifteen minutes reading to a friendly, carefully selected dog.

Can this help your child’s reading?

Similar programmes have been shown to improve reading fluency between 10 – 30% over time, however no results are guaranteed.

How to participate

Please bring a book that your child has read before or choose one from the library before the session. Most sessions will be on the mobile library bus.

Dogs have each been carefully selected and will be monitored by the dog’s owner/handler. A library staff member will also be on hand at all times during the session, however the sessions encourage children to read to the dog with minimal adult intervention.

Please arrive early and be ready to read, we reserve the right to juggle timeslots if you are running late on the day.

To Book/Waiting List

These sessions are run fortnightly on a Thursday throughout term 2. Choose the day you need from the drop down on the right. Click register to see a list of available timeslots.

If the day or session you're interested in is booked and you want to be added to our waiting list simply call Rolleston Library on 03 347 2880

IMPORTANT

Please do not book your child into a session if they are nervous or anxious around dogs.

Please do not book your child into a session if they have a known allergy to dogs.
