Dogs in the Library

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.

* September 14th: John W. Scott Library, 12:30pm
* September 28th: Coutts Library, 12:00pm

Augustana students, did you know that the Augustana library is home to Hutch the Library Dog? Next time you’re in the library, be sure to stop by and see Hutch.

And remember, nothing brightens everyone’s day like dog photos. Share selfies of you and your favourite therapy dog on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram: #CAAWLS, #dogsinthelibrary, and #uofalibraries. We’d also love to see them in our Twitter feed, @uofalibraries.
