Congratulations dog lovers! It is officially ‘The Year of the Dog’ at the Lewistown Public Library.
This summer the library held a friendly reading competition ‘Reading Like Cats & Dogs’ to determine the library pet of the year. Any book participants read that mentioned a cat or a dog could be used for voting.
Dogs received the most overall votes for the library pet of the year. The summer reading competition had high participation and winners drawn from each category received a canvas tote stuffed with books, puzzles and other goodies.
Once the winners were drawn, the top read books from each category were compiled into lists. The lists for top recommended dog books and top recommended cat books are on display at the library for ease of patron checkout. Enjoy!
