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, November 3, 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:

Halloween is almost here and the adventure continues. Our library is getting new
books every day. Miss Ruth is doing coloring pages each week, so check them out when you
can. October 6th Story Time will be a Mad Hatter Tea Party. The U.S. Navy’s birthday is right
around the corner and we are going to make boats during our October 13th Story Time and
see if they float! Sounds like fun! Everyone loves pizza and October is Pizza Month. Our
project and snack on October 20th will be everything pizza. Since it’s Halloween, we decided
to turn our Children’s Room Treehouse into a bit of a haunted treehouse with cool
decorations and crazy things to put your hands into to see if you can guess what’s in the bag.
Come join us for these wonderful activities and bring your parents, because with more people
there is always more fun to be had. To round out the month, our annual Halloween Party is
Saturday, October 22nd at Noon in the West Wing of the Library. Wear your best
Halloween costume and come enjoy our fun party! I know we had fun last year so I hope to
see you here!

Learn Always,
Miss Ruth
