We are so thankful to the Ibis Charities Foundation, Inc. for the grant to support the Dog Tales Program at the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach. 


Dog Tales is a free reading incentive program which started in 2008 at the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach. 


It stars real, live dogs of all shapes, sizes 
and breeds.  When kids read aloud to the dogs, they feel at ease with fury, loving friends by their sides.  The trained therapy dogs and their owners, who come to the Library on a daily basis, are available for children of all ages to read aloud to and befriend.  Each child, using books they find in the Library’s general book collection, sits on the floor next to the dog and reads for approximately 15 minutes.  


Each year the Dog Tales program has brought together close to 1,600 children to meet with dogs like Trevor an Old English Sheep Dog, Riley a Golden Retriever, Molly a Terrier Mix, Fozzie and Kermit-130lb Newfoundlands.

Thank you for your support
