It’s summertime and a great time to catch up on pleasure reading. Our therapy dogs recommended some wonderful dog stories and encourage you to visit your local public library!

The Nor’wester therapy dogs will be visiting the Free Library at Northampton Township in Richboro on Thursdays now through August 8 from 1 to 2 p.m.

Stop by and read to the dogs!
