Come into the library tomorrow, Thursday the 15th, from 1-2pm and visit Sam and Charlie!
Meet Charlie the Australian Shepherd therapy dog and have his mom Sam read a book to you! Also learn more about therapy dogs and why Charlie is so special to Swanton Elementary School, the library, and his mom Sam! Some of you may know Mrs. Schmidt from school, and of course Charlie! She is an Intervention Specialist for children who have difficulties learning, reading, or just struggling with emotional development.
If you have been missing Sam and Charlie, this is a great chance to come in and see them both again!
Everyone is invited to this program; no need to register for this one! We will be meeting in the Children's Room; we hope to see you there!
