Come read to or hang out with a certified Therapy Animal!

This patron favorite is back, but with a twist!

All ages are welcome to come and spend time with a certified therapy animal. Attendees can choose to read a story aloud to the therapy animal or just hang out and give them some love! Feel free to bring a book from home, or you can pick one from our collection. Register, and a staff member will contact you with your session time. Each session is approximately 15 minutes long. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your time slot to select your reading materials and get settled.

Please note: This program has been expanded to serve all of our branches in Charles County. Please be sure to note which branch you have registered for. 

This event is subject to cancelation or modification without notice at the discretion of CCPL staff or the Pets On Wheels handler. Due to the nature of therapy animal visits, there may be times in which the animal needs an unplanned break, end the visit early, or cancel. Staff will contact all participants as soon as possible with any potential changes to this event.
