Write to the Dogs

Your Library therapy dog friends miss seeing you! Send an email to any of these furry friends and tell them what you’ve been up to, ask them questions, share what you’ve been reading, or write about some fun facts. They will send you an email response with their picture!

Please limit your emails to one dog each month, so they will be able to respond to everyone.
