It's a DOG-brary!

Now I know that usually pets are not allowed in the library, and that you have to leave Rascal tied up outside, or sticking his head out the car window. But for a short time this Saturday, March 23, our library becomes a DOG-brary!

I don't mean that you should rush into the library with your favorite canine and get a new book to "chew on". But we will be having our TAIL-WAGGING READERS program, in which kids can drop by and read a book to an interested furry friend.
Here is patron Bridget Kearney from Coopersburg meeting up with one of our pretty pooches.
Last month we had a great turnout! About 25 kids stopped by, and 5 trained and certified therapy dogs (along with their handlers) were on hand to get reading!

Great for reluctant readers, our dogs never judge or correct pronunciation. They only listen politely and give sloppy kisses.

This program is drop-in, so no need to sign up. It runs from 1:30 to 2:30 pm, in our StoryHour Center. Children ages 2-12 are welcome, parent or caregiver must stay.
