The main objective of this program is to provide a relaxed and “dog-friendly” atmosphere, which allows students to practice the skill of reading. Many of the children who participate in this program have difficulties reading and as a result have developed self-esteem issues. They are often self-conscious when reading aloud in front of other classmates.
By sitting down next to a dog and reading to the dog, all threats of being judged are put aside. The child relaxes, pats the attentive dog, and focuses on the reading. Reading improves because the child is practicing the skill of reading, building self-esteem, and associating reading with something pleasant. As one child on the DVD says, “It’s pretty fun!”

Whether in our attics or in boxes under the bed, we all have family heirlooms, photographs, letters, and artifacts that are important to us. Researching our own family histories is so important, but where to start? Preserving these precious items is a challenge, and can be expensive. Currently, more and more families are also facing the challenges of managing digital photos and files in a rapidly changing information environment. This hands-on workshop will provide common sense solutions to the most common challenges of historical research, artifact preservation, and digitization and file management.

Partnering with the Dallas Holocaust Museum and SMU’s Friends of the Library, the Dallas Public Library is excited to offer a full day workshop covering topics in preservation, digitization, and family history research.

Registered participants will receive a free preservation kit and a hands on demonstration of how to get started preserving family memories, while supplies last. This activity is recommended for adults and children ages 14 and up; limit one free kit per family.
