Murrieta Library Offers Reading to Therapy Dogs Program

MURRIETA, CA – Children reading storybooks to dogs - what could be cuter? The Murrieta Public Library invites children ages 3 to 12 to their weekly Dog Tales program, every Monday from 5 to 6 PM. Children will be able to read to trained therapy dogs from the non-profit organization, Love on a Leash.

“This is an excellent opportunity for children to interact with animals and ‘bone’ up on their reading skills, as well reading to certified therapy dogs,” says Youth Services Librarian, Allison Eagans.

All of the dogs are registered and tested therapy animals which means they have been screened for skills and temperament, health and cleanliness, good manners and attitude.  They are animals who people can't resist approaching; they inspire confidence and trust in the people around them.  They are calm and reliable, obedient, and impeccably groomed to be attractive and fun to touch and stroke.  They enjoy children and like curling up on the floor with them to hear stories.

The Murrieta Public Library is located at 8 Town Square (Adams Avenue and Kalmia Street). For more information call (951) 304-BOOK (2665) or visit the Library’s web page at
