MARSHALL – The Marshall Public Library’s monthly Family Reading Day Saturday, April 9, will be going to the dogs – literally, as children(and adults alike) will sing songs, listen to stories, do a dog-related craft or two, and even meet a real-live canine.
According to Felicia Maden, Youth Services Manager for the Marshall Public Library, Saturday’s reading time event is being held in conjunction with the Second Saturday events in downtown Marshall, which will also include the Humane Society of Harrison County/Marshall Rotary Club’s annual Faux Paws event on the square in downtown Marshall, a pet adoption event and other dog-related events.
“Children of all ages are invited with their parents to come to the library. We will sing songs, do a special craft that is dog related, and we will read some books that focus on dogs as main character, and we will have a special canine guest,” Maden said.
Becky Holland, editor of the Piney Woods News, will be the guest reader, and Toby, her almost three-year old Pug/Beagle/Chihuahua mix dog, will make an appearance for pictures and more with those kids in attendance.
