SLK - Mutt-i-grees in the Library Launch

Thursday, January 30

Join us for a brief, informative online session to introduce you to Mutt-i-grees in the Library, a free, innovative program that you can use in your library, whether it’s public or school. The free program materials include a puppet, a backpack and a 3 ring notebook with activity ideas. The materials can provide you with program ideas for users of all ages.

From the program’s website: Mutt-i-grees® in the Library is an exciting initiative that builds on children’s affinity for animals and highlights the unique characteristics and desirability of shelter dogs – Mutt-i-grees® – to teach essential social and emotional skills.

Kay Hammerson, Mutt-i-grees Program Manager and Librarian, will tell us how libraries throughout the country have been successfully using the program. State Library staff members will talk about the support SLK can give to participating libraries.
