WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Nora Dickey, 7, was one of several children participating in the “Tale Waggin’ Tutors” program at Alexander Hamilton Memorial Free Library in Waynesboro on Wednesday.

The shelter brings an adoptable dog to the library once a month, and children can sign up to read to the dog on a one-on-one basis.

Antietam Humane Society Executive Director Andrea Haugh brought Sassy, a puggle, to the library on Wednesday.

“The idea is that it is supposed to improve their skills in reading because the dog isn’t going to judge them if they miss a word,” said Lori Milach, youth services coordinator for the library.

“I like that they always snuggle up in your lap and listen to you read,” Nora said of the dogs.

For more information about the program, call the library at 717-762-3335.
