Bow WowThe Round Rock Public Library presents Bow Wow, a program that allows new readers to practice their skills with a therapy dog and its trainer.

Through our partnership with the Austin Dog Alliance, we offer Bow Wow on the first and third Saturdays of most months.

Pre-registration is required. To pre-register for a 10-minute reading slot, sign up at the Children’s Reference Desk or contact Virginia Hadley, 512-218-3275.

Appropriate behavior around our therapy dogs:

(parents, please review these guidelines with your children)
  1. Stay calm and quiet around the dog.
  2. Always ask for permission before petting the dog.
  3. Be kind to the therapy dog. Do not pull its tail or ears. Do not put your face in the dog’s face, or lay on the dog.
  4. Only one child reads to the dog at a time. Your reading group should include only the dog’s handler, the therapy dog, the child reader, and the parent/caregiver. This arrangement makes for a much more enjoyable reading experience for the child.
