The Ozark-Dale County Public Library welcomes
all, whether you are an adult, teenager, or kid; the Library
is always in need of good volunteers to help out!

Dothan Therapy Dogs
Join us every other month for fun with Dothan Therapy Dogs in the
Children’s Section of the Library during the Storytime programs at 10:30 and
4:30. They will be back on Thursday, May 5, 2016.
“Therapy Dogs International is a volunteer organization dedicated to
regulating, testing and registration of therapy dogs and their volunteer handlers
for the purpose of visiting nursing homes, hospitals, other institutions and
wherever else therapy dogs are needed.” From http://www.tdi-dog.org/About.aspx
Notes from the Treehouse:
Can you believe May is already here and many of you are getting ready for
summer vacation? We want to congratulate our graduate Kayla Johnson, Mr.
Darnell’s daughter. We have more changes and new events for you to enjoy this
summer at the library. The Ozark Pokémon League is official with the Pokémon
company. Our name and event days and times are now listed on the
Pokémon.com website; go look us up. Ruth and Michael represented Ozark in
the Alabama State Pokémon Championship in Helena, Alabama, and placed 56 &
57 in the whole state. We even played against each other where Michael won.
Everyone who attended the last tournament in Ozark was there as well.
We will have the Dothan Therapy Dogs, photography, celebrate Memorial
Day and have a hamburger project, which you have to see to believe. Summer
Reading program sign-up will be May 1 - June 16. Dates of the Summer Reading
program are as follows: June 16, 23, 30, then July 7, 14 and 21. Our theme this
year is “On your mark, get set….Read!” So get your tennis shoes ready; we have a
lot of fun events planned! During the six-week summer program, we will not
have the regular story time.
Wednesday, May 4th we will have an organizational meeting in the East
Wing for our adult coloring group which we will call Color Therapy. We want
your input and we want you to use the library as your get away from the world
destination. Reminder to you, we have eBooks and can reserve books, so please
use this service.
Learn Always,
Miss Ruth
