The Wailuku Public library will be hosting “Paws for Reading,” this Tuesday for keiki in grades one through five. The program will pair a child and a dog from Assistance Dogs of Hawaii through the Reading Education Assistance Dogs program. It’s all to build confidence and literacy skills. Parents need to contact the library to sign their children up for 15-minute reading sessions (pre-registration is required). All children must be on time for their session and accompanied by a parent or caregiver. If a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is needed, contact the library directly. Free. 3 pm- 4:30pm. Wailuku Public Library (251 High St., Wailuku); 808-243-5766.
