Reading with Dogs Stirling Central Library

On Saturday 11th July CCST took part in a reading with dogs events at Central Library in Stirling. The Reading with Dogs programme is designed to encourage young readers who lacked confidence with reading to come along to the library and, instead of reading to a person, read to a dog. The idea was the dog would listen to them and not judge, allowing them to relax and gain confidence in reading out loud.

Therapet Scruffy along with his owner Elspeth Jenkins and Trustee and Stirlingshire Area Representative Lynsey Thomson took part on the day. Three children took part and they were a mixture of new readers and children who found reading more challenging.

Scruffy was the perfect listeners and settled himself down on the rug for a little story time as the children sat beside him and read.

It is hoped that we will be able to organise more of these events in the future and will be able to make reading more enjoyable for other children.
