Pet Therapy in the Libraries

No comments :
Take advantage of some four-legged TLC this fall! Throughout the term, UofA Libraries, in association with Unwind Your Mind, will be welcoming therapy dogs from the Chimo Animal Assisted Wellness and Learning Society (CAAWLS) to four of our north campus libraries (Rutherford, Cameron, John W. Scott Library and the Education Library).

Pet therapy has been shown to be a fun, enjoyable way to decrease feelings of loneliness and anxiety. Therapy dogs are wonderful listeners, love meeting new people, and are happy to indulge in a cuddle. We invite everyone to take break from their work and studies to spend some time with these canine therapists.

Upcoming dates, times, and locations are noted below.

  • October 28th: John W. Scott Library, 2:00pm
  • November 4th: Coutts Library, 1:00pm
  • November 18th, Cameron Library, 11:30am
  • November 25th: Rutherford Library, 2:00pm
  • December 2nd: Rutherford Library, 2:00pm
  • December 9th, Cameron Library, 11:30
  • December 10th: John W. Scott Library, 1:00pm
And, drop by the Augustana Library for dog therapy with Hutch the Library Dog!
