Raise Your Paws for Books!

It is almost that time of the year when we say "Thank you!" to all of the volunteers who have shared their time and talent with the library.  Today I want to give a special "Thank you" to four very special volunteers who helped at the library this week:  Daisy, Kallie, Mocha, and Sam.  Yes, these four fabulous volunteers are DOGS!  These canines are paw-sitively fabulous story listeners who have been specially trained with their owners to work with people, in settings like schools, hospitals and libraries.   Thank you also to handlers Tracy and Bill Jobe (Kallie and Mocha), Sandra Little (Daisy), and Mary Rivers (Sam) for supporting the program.  The dogs'  favorite books were by Mo Willems and Jan Thomas.  See the pictures below for dogs caught in action!  - Elaine B.
