Last week, the Goodall Library hosted the Golden Love Therapy Dog Team for a successful Kids Read to Dogs event! Duncan-Marshmellow and his new friend Rocco visited for a Pre-K Story Time this morning, where they all enjoyed “Madeline Finn and the The Therapy Dog” by Lisa Papp together. Then, both dogs and their handlers, Nancy and Vince, met with families one on one for individual reading appointments. Everyone did a great job reading! Stay tuned for another visit from these great dogs in the winter, next time as an after-school event.
