Pawty at the Nowra library goes to the dogs | Photos

TAILS were wagging with tales at Nowra Library on Saturday.

For the first time in Australia the American based Reading Education Assistance Dogs (READ) program, Paws ‘n’ Tales was trialled to help children to find reading fun.

The program, designed for children between four and eight years of age, aims to improve participants reading and communication skills by having them read to an animal, in this case a very patient, kind, cuddly dog from the Paws Pet Therapy group.

The program launch started with a “Pawty”.

The launch featured a host of puppy themed books, food and craft.

Anyone interested in volunteering in the Paws ‘n’ Tales program should contact Sharon Stewart on 0418 869 181 or email Sharon.paws@hotmail.com.

Bookings for the Paws ‘n’ Tales sessions at Nowra Library are essential. Call Nowra Library on 4429 3712 or email decastic@shoalhaven.news.gov.au to secure a spot.
