Portugal Cove-St. Phillips Library Has Gone to the Dogs!

There will be some barking good times happening in the newly renovated Portugal Cove-St. Phillips Library this fall. In partnership with St. John Ambulance, the Town will be hosting the “Paws 4 Stories” program.

The Paws 4 Stories program is a Canadian program developed by the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program in conjunction with Canadian libraries, where children get the opportunity to read to a volunteer Therapy Dog. Children will get to practice their reading aloud skills in 15 minute, one-on-one sessions with a St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog handler team.

For more information on registration, please call Elyse Sparkes-Coombs at 895-5655 or email library@pcsp.ca.
