PALS ( Pet Assisted Literacy Support) in the Library

Unionville Branch


Markham Public Library in partnership with One Health Partners, is thrilled to introduce PALS in the Library, an animal assisted reading program designed to motivate, inspire and support the development of literacy skills, social emotional learning and love of reading.  Young readers build confidence and capacity as they read out loud to a learning pal who is fun, furry and only requires reading to be punctuated with periodic pats

This program will  provide a unique, safe and fun learning opportunity for children to individually practice reading to a certified therapy dog who is also temperament tested professionally evaluated, safety and health screened therapy dogs.  

Suitable for:
Books & Reading
