Barks and Books



Children are invited to visit the Library to read animal-related short stories of their choice to dogs from the Pasadena Humane Society Companion Animal Program. Not only does this make reading more fun, it also builds a child’s confidence in reading aloud. The available books will also help youngsters realize that animals experience a range of emotions and have basic needs, just like humans, and this will encourage them to appreciate the importance of treating all animals with respect and kindness.

Sign-ups are required. Go to or call Children’s Services at 626-403-7358. Ages 5-10
