Furry Tails Reading Program

A “Furry Tails Reading Program” is held in Wyoming.  This free program offers children the opportunity to read to a specially trained dog.  This program meets every 3rd Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. at the Wyoming Free Library on Wyoming Ave.  Children choose a story they’d like to read, and the dogs are happy to hear the stories.  Please call the 570-693-1364 to register and reserve a time at the library.
