Nor’wester’s public library liaison & coordinator, Lynn Lenz, worked with librarians Sarah Ravapinto and Christy Lazzarino to offer a six week vacation program of READ TO THE DOGS at the Richboro public library. The program started on June 27th and ran weekly on Thursdays through August 8th. Therapy dogs were provided by the Nor’wester organization and drew a large crowd each week. A special thank you to Lynn Lenz, the librarians, and all the therapy dog teams who joined the children and their parents for a relaxing and enjoyable reading hour.
