Meet Eele, a licensed therapy dog, and her human, Joan. Read to Eele, tell her a story, or just give her belly a rub. Reading to a dog is a low-pressure way for children to practice their reading skills, and fun besides! A parent or legal guardian must sign a permission form before children read with Eele. Stop by the desk in the children's room to complete the form and sign up for a turn with Eele.
