Downward-Facing Goat: Programs for Animal and Human Health

When you think of health programs in public libraries, you probably think of people. But public health includes the environments in which we live, which includes the animals around us. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has an entire website devoted to Healthy Pets, Healthy People, and this is the topic we will explore in this month’s blog. 

Puppies and Pi(e)

Every year on Pi Day, March 14, local animal shelter Pet Rescue by Judy brings puppies to our library, and we set up an area in our larger meeting room where teens and adults can play with them. Because it’s Pi Day, we also buy seven or eight pies from the local grocery store.

So we eat pie and play with puppies for a couple of hours. This year, the event lasted from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
