The Tomie dePaola Children's Library, part of the Meriden Public Library, has announced a new reading program for children which encourages the strengthening of skills by reading aloud to a certified therapy dog named Freya.

The program, which is open to children in K-4th grades, will run every Thursday in June from 3:30 to 4:30. Kids will have approximately 15 minutes to read from one of their favorite stories or can choose a book to read at the library. Registration is required and children may participate in up to two sessions.

For children struggling to read or needing a boost in self-confidence, this is a perfect way to make reading a fun experience in a non-judgemental setting. Each child will also receive a small token from the library to mark the occasion.

The library is located at 105 Miller St, Meriden, CT. For more information or to register your child, call (203) 630-6347 or email
