Therapy dog reading sessions for residents are coming to Leesburg Public Library and Lake Square Mall.
The sessions will be hosted by Pet-Assisted Visitation Volunteer Services (PAWS), an organization that offers a chance for people of all ages to read to and engage with dogs in a therapeutic setting.
The Leesburg Public Library will host their “Reader of the Pack” series on Thursday, Nov. 5, at the library (100 E Main Street) starting at 3 p.m. All ages are invited to participate by registering for a 30-minute session with a certified PAWS animal.
Registration and face coverings are required. Family and friends may register for a single session for a maximum of six people to read to and pet the dogs.
