WOOD-RIDGE, N.J. -- Young readers at the Wood-Ridge Memorial Library can practice their reading skills by reading to certified therapy dogs Rodney and Teddy.

The event will take place Monday, Jan. 25 from 6-7 p.m. in the Wood-Ridge Library Reading Room

Children age 5 and older may sign up for a 15-minute slot to read to Rodney.

Rodney was recently the recipient of an honorable mention in the Therapy Dog category at the 2015 AKC Humane Fund Awards for Canine Excellence.
