Join us on Saturday, July 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for our Dog Days of Summer Community Dog Show. The day will include a dog-themed storytime at 11:00 a.m., a children’s craft table, a StoryWalk in the garden, free ice cream donated by SoCo Creamery, and tables from local dog-loving businesses and shelters.
This event is all about the dogs, so bring along your favorite furry friend and show them off by walking down our red carpet! Enter your dog into one of the following categories:
- Smallest dog with the biggest personality: 11:30 a.m. – 11:40 a.m.
- Eyes that make your heart melt: 11:40 a.m. to 11:50 a.m.
- Most likely to make a stranger stop and pet: 11:50 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- Best grooming or style inspired by a book character: 12:00 p.m. to 12:10 p.m.
Red carpet participants are asked to arrive 10 minutes prior to the category start time in order to fill out an entry ticket for their category.
Raffle winners for each category will be announced immediately after their category ends. Prizes donated by The Berkshire Dog, Little Wool Dogs, and Camp Wagalot! All participants will be entered into a grand prize raffle. The grand prize raffle winner will be announced after the last category walks.
All attendees are invited to enter a general admission prize raffle. Any child attending the Dog Show can enter a separate raffle for a children’s prize. There is no cost associated with entering either raffle.
The Library asks that owners make sure their dog is comfortable around large groups of people and other dogs and is leashed at all times. No dogs are allowed inside the library and cleaning up after your pooch is required!
