MOORE — ‘Barks, Books and Buddies’ program

The Moore Public Library invites learning readers to practice their reading while making a new friend at its “Barks, Books and Buddies” program from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. the first and third Tuesdays of most months at the library, 225 S. Howard Ave.

Upcoming editions of the program are set for April 16 in the library’s Story Time Room.

Children will read to a therapy dog who will spend time listening and not correcting, as a way to encourage the readers’ skills.

Parents or caregivers can sign up for a 15-minute session for their children to read by visiting the Children’s Desk or calling 793-4347.
