PawsToRead_McDonnell_Blank croppedOur summer reading theme is “Paws to Read” where we are featuring animal related books for our bonus books.  In addition to reading the books, why not “paws” and donate to our furry/feathered/scaled friends in need?  We have several local shelters that can use a human hand in meeting the needs of those with paws, claws, and/or tails.  Most of them have basic needs like paper towels, tissues, HE laundry detergent, disinfecting wipes, non-clumping kitty litter and trash bags but there are other specialized needs for donations as well.  Bring your donation in to the Readers Advisory desk, sign up for Adult Summer Reading, and get your bonus ticket.
