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 story time programs at 10:30
and 4:30. They will be back on Thursday, January 19, 2017.
“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,
Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa are here. Akin to this
tremendous time, we look back through our year and review the
blessings bestowed upon us. Will this be the year snow comes to Dale
County? December encourages fluffy fur and cozy things. Our project
for Dec. 1st will be a faux fur project for your hot drink mug. Miss Ruth’s
Birthday is Dec. 8th and we will Pretend to be a Time Traveler. Will this
project make Miss Ruth younger? We have a new President-elect, so
doing a Bill of Rights project on Dec. 15th will be a fun way to learn our
rights and responsibilities as an American. No storytime on Dec. 22nd &
Dec. 29th so you can hang out with your family. Don’t miss our
exciting December adventures at the Treehouse.
The library will be closed Dec. 23rd and Dec. 24th for Christmas
Holidays and we will be closed on Dec. 30th and 31st for New Year’s.
Check out our new videos from the story times during 2016 on our
Facebook page and You Tube Channel. We plan to show more videos
throughout 2017. If your family has moved, changed phones, or emails,
please remember to update your records with us.
Learn always,
Miss Ruth
