If you've been to Bowral Library on a Tuesday afternoon recently, you may have caught a glimpse of Mr Gambler the schnauzer.
Mr Gambler might be small and furry but he's ready to lend a paw to help boost children's reading confidence.
The Paws 'n' Tales reading program is for children aged 4 to 6 years.
It aims to boost reading skills and confidence in a relaxed environment. Volunteers and specially trained dogs spend time reading with children every Tuesday afternoon during the school term at Bowral Library.
The program is free for library members and is proudly supported by the Friends of Wingecarribee Libraries.
For further details and to book, please contact Lisa McKay from Paws Pet Therapy on 0421 635 088 or email email@example.com.
