Back by popular demand, Otis, a yearly-certified therapy dog from Therapy Dogs International, came to the Lexington Branch of the Mansfield/Richland County Public Library! In an effort to improve their reading skills, Kids from 1st through 6th grade had the chance to read one of their favorite stories to Otis. Otis's owner, Sue Bobst says it's a great way for kids to read at their own pace, and not be self-conscious about their reading level. As a certified therapy dog, Otis also visits Hospice Patients. For information on Otis's next visit, call the Lexington Branch of the Mansfield/Richland County Public Library at 419-884- 2500. or visit the Therapy Dogs International Website: http://www.tdi- dog.org/About.aspx
