Entertainment to get you through the Dog Days of Summer

A message from our Friends (of the Library, that is)!

Technically summer doesn’t officially begin for another week, but around here it’s already feeling like the Dog Days of Summer.

Speaking of dogs, did you know the Friends of the Pima County Public Library have all kinds of books celebrating the furry friends in your life?

Visit the Friends’ Book Sale on Saturday, June 17 (Members Sale) and June 24–25 (Community Sale) to find the books you need to keep your dog happy and healthy. Plus, kids will be delighted by the assortment of animal adventure stories and books filled with fun animal facts.

Read to a DogLooking for a fun family activity? Did you know that dogs love a good story? Keep cool at Pima County Public Library, where some of our favorite canines are waiting for a child to share a great book. Check out the Library’s Read to a Dog Program today! Not only is it fun and offered at multiple library locations, but it’s a wonderful way to inspire a love of reading in young children!

Was the book or the movie better?  Make up your own mind—this month the Friends' Book Sale features books that have been made into movies.  Read the book and decide if your creative flair could have made the movie better.  Haven’t seen the movie?  The Friends has an assortment of DVDs for your next movie marathon.
