Dothan Therapy Dogs


Join us every other month for fun with Dothan Therapy Dogs in the
Childrens Section of the Library during the story time programs at 10:30
and 4:30. They will be back on Thursday, September 1, 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.

Notes from the Treehouse:


School started with a bang, & parents are getting back into the normal swing of life.
The library is back in the groove with fun & interesting themes for September. Our therapy
dog friends will be starting off our month on the very first day. National Ampersand Day is
Sept. 8 & who knew there was a special day for the & symbol, so we will do a great project to
celebrate. Make a Hat Day is the theme for Sept. 15. Elephants need special appreciation on
Sept. 22 because this is their special day. Rounding out the month with Banned Book Week,
we will celebrate Banned Book Day & do a cool project. We will have snacks & read a book
every story time, which is 10:30am & 4:30pm every single Thursday in the childrens library.
Story time is for anyone ages 2-12. The childrens coloring contest is a fun way to win a free
book. You can get your coloring page through the newsletter at home, school or library.
We would love to see more people coming to color therapy at 4pm on Wednesdays.
Saturday art lessons this month will involve tons of color. Colored pencils will add a touch of
vibrancy. The group for our Ozark Pokmon League is growing. Bring your 60-card deck &
hang out or trade with friends 1pm-4pm every Saturday. Computers, cellphones & tablets
sometimes seem like a foreign object that everyone else seems to know how to use but you.
Youre not alone. Darnell & Jeff can help teach you how to operate these items. Computer
class is Saturday 9am-10am & phone/tablet class is 2pm-3pm on Fridays.
If you need volunteer hours for any reason, the library always needs volunteers & you
will learn a lot about how a library operates. Recommend the library to everyone you know.
The childrens library is putting an entry into the Dothan Botanical Gardens Scarecrow in the
Gardens 2016 Contest & Show. Come see our scarecrow as it progresses. The theme is Its
Only Make Believe!

Learn Always,
Miss Ruth
