Barks & Books

One of Pasadena Public Library’s strongest partnerships is with the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. The Humane Society helps make reading fun for school children through their Barks & Books Companion Animal Program, which partners a certified therapy dog with beginning readers. Young children read to these gentle, well-trained dogs, removing the anxiety they may experience when reading aloud to an adult or their peers. This helps strengthen children’s reading skills and boosts their confidence in reading aloud. It also encourages children to use respectful, humane behavior towards animals and demonstrates the proper way to approach a strange dog. Barks & Books is offered at 19 local libraries in the greater Pasadena area, of which almost half are Pasadena Public Library sites. The Humane Society is delighted to offer this program that has helped so many children boost their reading skills and self-confidence.
