Library hosts successful Therapy Pets Night, March 14

All tucked in and ready to go home after a fun night cuddling with Tommies!

O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library student worker, Hongwei Cui, helps nine bunnies and one Guinea pig snuggle into their wagon for a ride to their vehicle and a good night’s sleep.  The animals had been busy befriending students at the March 14th Therapy Pets Night in the Library!

Bunnies, Guinea pigs, and dogs will be back at the library on Thursday, May 16th, from 6-8 pm.

Open to all  – we hope you can come!
