Children read to therapy dog at Marathon Co. Library


Children at the Marathon County Public Library had the chance to read their favorite story to a pretty good listener.

"Read to a Therapy Dog" began at the library in Wausau Thursday. The event allows children to come ot the library every Thursday afternoon through the summer to read to the dog. Organizers say the event is an opportunity for children to connect with the animals, and to open up to a perfect audience.

"Because the dogs are so accepting, they feel more confident about reading aloud which is always a difficult thing," said Sharyn Heili, a children's librarian.

The event runs from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. every Thursday and is free and open to the public.
