Discover the pleasures of reading to friendly library dogs! Animals are ideal reading companions; they listen
attentively, do not criticize, allow children to proceed at their own pace and are less intimidating than classmates
or adults. View our Policies and Procedures, or the FAQs, for this program. Add your child to the waitlist by
calling the library at (916) 774-5221 or the Roseville Sports Center at (916) 774-5990. All interested participants
are added to a waitlist.
