Reading with Rafi
Certified therapy dogs, Rafi and Lucy, will be at the library, for children to read to.
Research has found that beginning or struggling readers often show marked improvement when reading to a dog because they are non-judgmental and are great listeners. This makes children are more relaxed which can help them learn.
Registration is required.
More About Westwood Free Public Library
Westwood's library is located near downtown, across from Veterans' Memorial Park and the train station. The library has a number of resources for residents besides the materials within its walls. Individuals can sign up for free English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, get tutors to help with basic computer skills and join book groups. For kids, the library offers story times and after school clubs. There is a book sale monthly and a rotating art exhibit. Director Martha Urbiel describes the library as very active. The library is always seeking volunteers to be ESL and computer tutors and to help with the book sale, along with other fund-raising and advocacy efforts spearheaded by the Friends of the Library.
