Dogs in the Library is back for 2017!

No comments :
Warm up throughout the winter term with the help of everyone's favourite therapy dogs! U of A Libraries, in association with Unwind Your Mind, will be welcoming 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 is 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.

  • January 17th: Cameron 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 photos of dogs. Share selfies of you and the dogs on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram: #CAAWLS, #dogsinthelibrary, and #uofalibraries. We’d also love to see them in our Twitter feed, @uofalibraries.
