Storyhouse Room

These four-legged friends love listening to books! Children of any age and reading level are welcome to participate in this drop-in activity.

Book Buddies Pony Express Therapy Dogs partners with Rolling Hills Library to provide young readers these opportunities for read-alouds in the presence of friendly, non-judgemental listeners. Research has shown that "canine-assisted reading" can have a positive influence on children's attitudes towards reading, lowering anxiety and  boosting self-confidence.
