Zoom Passes

Zoom Pass Logo

Alamance County Public Libraries and the Friends of the Alamance County Public Libraries have teamed up with area attractions to make the ACPL ZOOM pass program available.

Paws for Reading

Our ongoing program is designed to help children improve their reading skills by reading aloud to a registered therapy dog. Children read for 15 minutes in a relaxed, one-on-one session with a lovable dog.

Libraries and schools across the country are having great success with this one-on-one program.  Children have a unique opportunity to read to a dog, helping them gain confidence reading aloud. Paws for Reading is open to children ages 6 – 12.

StoryWalks

There are five Storywalks around Alamance County that feature a disassembled children’s story around a path or trail, promoting literacy and physical activity all at once! Stories are changed every quarter.
