News Updates for August 03-09, 2023

We had wonderful attendance for our Storytime sessions with Cooper the therapy dog this summer. For two occasions, Cooper visited the Tolono Public Library for kids to take turns petting him and reading to him after Storytime. And this week, on August 1st, Cooper and his owner Sherri Harper led Storytime! We are grateful for their help and hope that we can invite them back again.
