Reading With Rescues

  • Prairie Paws Animal Shelter, 3173 KS-68, Ottawa, KS 66067

Service Description

We are partnering with Prairie Paws as part of our O-Town Community Read Event. All ages (adults too) are welcome to sign up for a 20 minute time slot to read to an animal at Prairie Paws. Times will be 3:30-3:50, 4:00-4:20, 4:30-4:50 and 5:00- 5:20 on Monday 1st, Wed. 3rd, Mon 8th, Wed 10th, Mon 15th, Wed 17th, Mon 22nd and Wed 24th. We ask that you only register for one time slot per week to allow as many people as possible to participate in the experience. You may bring your favorite book along with you or pick from the selection at Prairie Paws. Masks MUST be worn at all times. Once you arrive at the shelter, a staff member will let you in and escort you to the visiting room for your reading session (currently no tours of the shelter are allowed). Parents are welcome to stay with their child in the visiting room. A staff member will bring you a pet to read to, at this time mostly only cats are available. Any questions call the library or email
