    • Calendar: Scarborough Public Library Youth Services
    • Start time: 10:30am
    • Many of you know Gracie—a therapy dog who has visited us many times with her owner, Pat Touri. She will be joined by Emmie and her owner Mindy Beller to offer children who are reluctant readers with a powerful way to improve their reading skills: reading to the dogs in a private, cozy nook created just for them. To register your child for a 15 minute session, call 883-4723 opt. 3, or email kids@scarboroughlibrary.org
