What's better than curling up with a good book? Cuddling up with a Paws to Read therapy dog and a good book! Kids, dogs, and books—what a great relationship! 

Paws to Read is a very simple concept: Children read to dogs. The dogs listen and don't tease, laugh, or judge the child. The Massillon Public Library offers Paws to Read once a month, giving children the chance to read to therapy dogs.
