I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
Chelsea was my 12 and 1/2 year old Golden Retriever who was the "Library Dog" at Kent County Public Library Maryland. She worked at the library on Thursdays smiling at customers, following them around and listening to children read. The rowdy neighborhood kids would calm down when Chelsea was at the library. Sorry to say she only worked at the library a year before she died. My new puppy, a cockapoo is not calm enough to work at the library. YET!
