The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program improves children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to an animal. But not just any animal.

If your child would like the experience of reading to a friendly animal companion, sign up for a reading time and date at the Children's Desk or call 801-229-7161 to schedule an appointment.
