In honor of National Dog Day, the Children’s Department at the Welles-Turner Library will hold a special storytime featuring kids' best friends. This day celebrates all dogs, mixed breed and pure.

A craft table will be set out after storytime with a simple craft for little ones. Older children may make a dog tug-toy for their own pet or to donate to an animal shelter. The craft table will be open until 4:30pm. While visiting, enjoy a great dog story or read more about your favorite breed. No registration is needed.
