Back to Top Discovery Learning Peoria Library System PAWS 2 Read @ Your Peoria Libraries PAWS 2 Read is an on-going program which allows children to read aloud to therapy dogs in order to improve reading skills. When children practice reading individually to trained therapy dogs (and their handlers) they become more confident readers, while having fun!
