Come read to or hang out with a certified Therapy Animal!

All ages are welcome to come and spend time with a certified therapy animal. Attendees can choose to read a story aloud to the therapy animal or just hang out and give them some love! You can just bring a book from home, or you can pick one from our collection. Please register in advance to participate in this program. Participation is not guaranteed without registrations, drop-ins will try to be accommodated if there is available slots open. Once you have registered a staff member will reach out to you with your session time. Each session is approximately 15 minutes long. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your time slot to select your reading materials and get settled.

This event is subject to cancelation or modification without notice at the discretion of CCPL staff or the Pets On Wheels handler. Due to the nature of therapy animal visits, there may be times in which the animal needs an unplanned break, end the visit early, or cancel. Staff will contact all participants as soon as possible with any potential changes to this event.

From a pilot project of just four individual visits, our therapy pet teams now log more than 175,000 touches with people at nearly 400 facilities and special events in an average year. Regularly visiting nursing homes and hospitals, assisted living facilities, homeless and domestic violence shelters, veterans’ hospitals, libraries, schools, colleges, corporate campuses, and more, Pets on Wheels volunteers log over 12,000 hours a year to fight stress and help lick loneliness one visit at a time.
