Children read to a dog at the Tracy Branch Library, 20 E. Eaton Ave., during a Paws for Reading event Saturday. During the monthly event, children read aloud to trained therapy dogs from Paws for Friends. The activity helps children overcome the embarrassment of misreading some words, because the dog won’t judge their mistakes. The group visits the Tracy library the third Saturday of each month and the Mountain House library, 250 E. Main St., the second Saturday of each month.
