Young readers sign up, zoom in, and share your choice of stories with the Library’s four-legged friends…at home! These child- certified pooches have ears of the floppy, pointy, velvety variety and they are GOOD listeners. Email to book your spot!


jerrys blanketCircleJerry is a Golden Doodle who absolutely LOVES to snuggle.  If you don’t continue to pet him, he takes his paw and gently gives you a little nudge and then places his big paw on top of your head.  Jerry loves tennis balls almost as much as he loves snuggling.  He can chase them all day long! You’ll often see Jerry roaming the beach of Lang Bay with two green tennis balls inside of his mouth. (Handler’s name: Deb Maitland)




Rumi is a very inquisitive Whoodle (Wheaton Terrier X Poodle) who enjoys playing ball. She loves meeting people and other dogs and her favourite day would consist of a leisurely swim in the ocean followed up by a long, snuggly nap with her human. (Handler’s name: Tony Papa)



Ursa the Australian Shepherd who wags her tail by wiggling her entire body. (Handler’s name:Lynne)






Freda is a mixed-breed Husky-Lab-Shepherd-Chihuahua, blessed with a sweet nature and a quick mind.  Freda was adopted by her handler Vanessa in hopes that she’d make a good running buddy that would keep the bears away but it turns out that Freda is a bit of a couch potato!  Luckily Freda has lots of other delightful qualities including a sense of humour, a love for snuggling, endless patience and the most beautiful eyes ever. (Handler’s name: Vanessa Sparrow)




Tessa is one of our senior dogs … but please don’t tell her that.  Despite her age, she is full of energy!  Tessa is a beautiful, loving, big, bouncy Lab who will chase a chuck-it-ball forever!  Tessa’s nickname is “The Composter” because she eats kale, carrots peas, berries and almost anything else that she can harvest from her mom’s garden. (Handler’s name: Pat Good)


Mia is a sweet loving girl who always has a big smile on her face. She loves stuffies, going up the lake, and chasing chickens around the yard. Mia loves belly rubs and giving high fives. Her favourite foods are ice cream and broccoli. She is learning new tricks like how to catch a Frisbee. Mia is excited to listen to you read. She LOVES all books! (Handler’s name: Nicole Stevens)



Mali the happy little Golden Doodle. Cute as a button and always eager to make new friends.  (Handler’s name: Sharon)
