Reading PUPS Program


Saturday, April 18 - 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.

Children’s Library

Morton-James Public Library


Morton-James Public Library is partnering with the Domesti-PUPS ReadingPUPS Program. This program is provided to elementary age

school students in 1st through 3rd grade to improve their reading skills

using a ReadingPUPS certified therapy team as literacy mentors.


The ReadingPUPS program utilizes registered therapy dogs, which have been trained and tested for health, safety skills and temperament.  These special dogs volunteer with their owners as Pet Therapy Teams, offering children an irresistible opportunity to improve their reading in a setting, which has proven not only effective but also fun. And fun is a powerful, motivating force for learning that we grown-ups often overlook.


Registration is required. Parental permission slips must be filled out before your child may participate in the program. For additional information please contact the Morton-James Public Library 402-873-5609.
