Abstract

Kids learn to read by doing it. Learn how a partnership between Midnight Sun Service Dogs and Anchorage Public Library provides a positive reading experience that is
especially beneficial for struggling, emerging, and reluctant readers. PAWSitive Reading provides a childfriendly atmosphere that allows kids to read to a dog, which helps them build confidence in reading while having fun doing it. Linda Klein is a Youth Services Librarian at Anchorage Public Library. She helps children and parents connect with the information and books they need to be informed and to feed their passions. She works closely with community partners to encourage children to connect with books, the arts, and science. She is always finding fun in her work, and she wants everyone to experience the joy that can be found the library. She generally has about 25 library books checked out at any given time, and she wishes she had time for more.
