Today we had our second visit from the wonderful dogs (and their people!) from Paws Patrol. Paws Patrol is an organization of volunteers and their certified therapy dogs. These volunteers generously share their time and sweet animals with the community–in addition to library visits like the ones we had on June 12 and today, they also visit hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and other facilities.
When the dogs visit our library, they listen patiently as children of all ages eagerly share books with them. I love watching the kids search for just the right book to read, and the look of triumph when they have finished reading to their favorite dog. It literally makes me grin from ear to ear the entire time they are here. Thanks to everyone who came out to share it with us, and an extra special thanks to the dogs and volunteers at Paws Patrol! We loved it!
