HEY, KIDS, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Prairie Community Library has a new arrival and this time it isn't a book! It's a puppy holding a book donated by Dog Bark Park. He came without a name so we want you to NAME THE DOG. A contest will begin next week and continue through December 31. Anyone 12 years of age and under is eligible to enter. If you haven’t seen him yet, come by the library and see what you think his name should be. He is sitting on a little stool and reading a book titled, “How to Teach Humans to do Tricks.” He is very easy to care for-no barking, no house training, very clean and quiet. No Vet bills or special dog food and he don’t mind staying home alone.
He comes from a long line of dogs who think it is quite important to read. He loves to be read to. No matter how you read, he just sits and listens. He wants to teach kids the value of reading.
Write your choice name on a piece of paper and drop it in the special box in the library. Be sure to include your name, address and phone number on the back of the paper. A winner will be picked early in January. A prize will be awarded.
Dennis Sullivan carved him from pine wood from Charlie Poxleitner's land on Cottonwood Butte. So he is no stranger to the area.
Intermountain Therapy Animals has a program called R.E.A.D. which stands for Reading Educational Assistance Dogs. Dog Bark Park has donated other dog statues to this group which also uses real live dogs to help children with medical needs as well as reading skills. Dennis and Frances encourage everyone to read. We at the Library thank you for this and your many other contributions to the library.
JOHN STOCKTON is now in our library. For all you fans, friends and relatives of John Stockton, we now have his Autobiography, “Assisted”, by John Stockton and Kerry L. Pickett. Other new arrivals include “The Longest Ride” by Nicholas Sparks and “Never Go Back” by Lee Child.
