New York Public Library Embraces Mutt-i-grees Programming
Thanks to the support of Caitlyn Colman-McGaw, programming assistant for young adult education and engagement at New York Public Library, branches across the boroughs are joining our Mutt-i-grees in the Library initiative and introducing children, teens, and families to the importance of shelter pet adoption. Over the next few months, our team will be collaborating with librarians at nearly a dozen sites in the city's library system to offer Mutt-i-grees programming that promotes social and emotional skills, such as self-awareness, decision-making, and cooperation. Lauren Bradley, young adult librarian at the George Bruce Branch Library, has been pleased with the engagement by her teen patrons, noting that Mutt-i-grees programs have the highest attendance for this age group she's seen in a long time!
