June 30, 2015 Summer Reading Program Tuesday program-"Animals as Superheroes" 

 

On Tuesday, June 30th, summer reading program participants were treated to a special visit by several local "Animal Superheroes!"

 

The youngest children enjoyed learning about how therapy dogs are superheroes in their own right!  Some therapy dogs help people stay calm while experiencing a stressful event or while being at a medical care facility and being treated for a medical condition.  The children learned the stress-reducing power of our four-legged friends and were able to meet Woody, a specially trained therapy dog, and Rae Ann Duffing, his owner.  

 

Second to sixth graders were treated to a special presentation on police dogs by Sergeant Beam of the Evart Police Department and his police dog, Yogi, a German Shepard.  The children learned that Yogi's "super powers" are protecting the Community by detecting drugs, patrolling and tracking. 

 

We would like to thank our special guests Rae Ann Duffing and Woody, her therapy dog, and Officer John Beam of the Evart Police Department and Yogi, his police dog, for taking the time to visit the Library!
