Glatfelter program featured in Woman’s Day

Glatfeler Memorial Library featured in Women's Day

Pick up a copy of the April issue to read about the Tales for Tails program.

When you swing by the grocery store this week, find a copy of the April issue of Woman’s Day — you’ll find a local library program featured inside.

Tales for Tails, a therapy dog program that began six years ago at Glatfelter Memorial Library, launched as an opportunity for new and reluctant readers. Youngsters can sit next to a friendly canine and read aloud without worrying about stumbling over a few words here and there. (My younger brother loves a similar program in my Connecticut hometown.)

Library volunteer Gemma Martin began the program at Glatfelter, but other York County libraries have started their own sessions, too. For full details on upcoming programs, check out the York County Libraries online calendar.
