The Milford Memorial Library is excited to announce that Caroline Perkins and her dog, Hank, will be available to listen to stories the second Saturday of each month starting Saturday, June 10, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.! Caroline and Hank are a therapy dog team, licensed by the Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program. In the past they worked for 5 years in Cable, WI, as part of the Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D) program. Prior to the R.E.A.D. program Caroline was a Special Education Teacher. Hank is a great listener and loves to listen to all kinds of stories. Children who are beginner readers or just want a chance to improve on reading aloud are encouraged to come read to Hank. Children can read to Hank on a first come, first serve basis. The amount of time a child will get to read to Hank is determined by the length of the book, child’s reading level, and the number of children waiting to read to Hank.
