A fun and supportive reading program with our trained and accredited Story Dogs team.

Practice reading one-on-one with our Story Dog in a calm and motivating environment. If your child would like to read to our Story Dog regularly, book a slot in advance—phone 02 6685 8540. We can't wait for you to meet our Story Dog at Byron Bay Library!

Our library is very excited to have Story Dogs visiting. Please help us by following these six golden rules to keep everyone safe and happy.

 Children attending Story Dogs must be of school age
 Carergivers and other children are asked to give the Story Dog team adequate space and to not interrupt reading sessions
 Attendees are asked to moderate their behaviour around the Story Dog and the Story Dog team. Please treat them with respect and don't crowd them
 If you or other children would like to interact with the Story Dog, please ask the volunteer at the end of a session if a gentle pat is appropriate
 Please follow all requests and directions from library staff and the Story Dog volunteer.
