Tales for Tails @ your Library

As seen in the news - Tales for Tails

Children who are new to reading or who need a little help can benefit by reading to a dog in Tales for Tails sessions at the Glatfelter Memorial Library.

Molly, Luke, Sophie, Brewster and Buddy are ready to listen! Please register ahead of time, and come the 2nd Saturday of the month at 10 a.m.

For details or to register, stop by the library or call 235-3220.

A little about our furry listeners: they are either certified through Therapy Dog International or Therapy Dog Incorporated.

Here are some of the requirements to be a therapy dog - (these may vary, depending on their certification)
  • A dog must be a minimum of one (1) year of age and have a sound temperament.

  • They must have a temperament evaluation for suitability to become a Therapy Dog.

  • The test will also include the evaluation of the dog's behavior around people with the use of some type of service equipment (wheelchairs, crutches, etc.).
