It was on the first weekend of November, 1999 that fourteen Intermountain Therapy Animal teams participated in the very first R.E.A.D. session with children at the Salt Lake City Public Library. The rest, as they say is history, as the idea of children reading with dogs has spread around the world.
We are planning all kinds of fun for this year, culminating in the official Tenth Anniversary on November 14, 2009.
