THE BALCH SPRINGS ANIMAL SHELTER AND LIBRARY INVITE YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN "TALES to TAILS"
Did you know, many shy, scared and restless shelter animals respond positively when read to? Did you also know that children benefit from reading to animals because they don't feel judged by the animal? Smaller children often want to help the animals in animal shelters and this is an awesome opportunity for our younger citizens. Its a win-win!
