PAWS FOR A STUDY BREAK

 

Mark your calendars for a study break at the Library! Canine Stress Counselors will be in the Walker Room on Friday and Saturday. Studies show that animals help reduce stress, so take a few minutes of your lunch break, and come visit. Fan favorites Kate, Heidi, and Shadow are scheduled to be here Friday. Saturday's roster includes our largest and smallest counselors together -- Boomer (the Great Dane) and Courtney (Toy Manchester Terrier). The volunteers are from Therapy Dogs International, and love bringing their dogs to hang out with our students!
