Students sat, petting the dogs and reading their favorite books.
Mastiffs Sydney and Yogi sat quietly peering up at the youngsters who were flipping through books while petting the dogs.
The mastiffs are trained therapy dogs that travel to libraries, nursing homes and hospitals to relax the children, sick or elderly, who read or talk to the animals.
But they also help kids with their reading and are part of a month-long program to pack families into area libraries.
Sydney and Yogi are visiting branches throughout the county in September as part of International Literacy Month.
