Oliver the Reading Dog returns to Williams

Today we welcomed Oliver, The reading Dog, back to Williams for the second year in a row. Oliver comes to us from the People and Pets foundation. He is accompanied by his owner , Karine Alexander, and her daughter, Caroline. His visit is part of the Williams PTO auction activities event. It gave our students a chance to practice and enjoy reading aloud. Reading should be fun and enjoyable and Oliver certainly gave us a wonderful opportunity to share books and reading together in the Williams library in a different way. Students had lunch in the library with me and then we shared dog poems and dog stories with our guests. The students were also able to give Oliver a treat. Thanks to Oliver, Karine, and Caroline for another creative and exciting visit to Williams. You can learn more about this program at Pets and People.org
