Introducing our new program for kids, R.E.A.D. to Leo!

Once upon a wag, there was a specially trained therapy dog named Leo. He wished that a child would read him a story. Visit us at the Bay Ridge Library on the last Saturday of September, between 1 -2 PM, to make Leo's dream come true.

This program is for children ages 5-12 only. Sign up at the front desk the day of the program for a fifteen-minute slot. Space is limited but Leo and his owner Angela will be back soon if you don't get to read to them this time around.

Leo is waiting to listen to you read to him! Dogs can’t read but they can be great listeners!
