Literacy is important and the Grand Forks Public Library helps instill this with its READ Dogs Program. Children have the opportunity to practice reading aloud one-on-one with a READ dog. The dogs prove to be the perfect audience and confidence booster since they are good, patient and nonjudgmental listeners. The READ Dogs program will be taking place this Saturday at 2pm. Call 701.772.8116 to  make an appointment for your child!
