Sophie will listen to young readers

The Destin Log

Children ages 6 to 12 years are invited to stop by the Destin Library from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 16, and “Read to Sophie.”

Sophie is a therapy dog trained by local resident Debbie Linton and certified by Therapy Dog International. The program provides an opportunity through Tail Waggin’ Tutors for children to practice their reading skills by reading aloud to a dog.

This is a drop-in program, with 20 minute shifts. No pre-registration is required and selected books will be made available by the library.

For more information contact the Destin Library at 850-837-8572.
