Library Hosts Annual Mutt-i-grees Pet Parade

For the third year in a row, The Smithtown Library in Smithtown, NY hosted a Mutt-i-grees Pet Parade for its patrons to highlight the unique characteristics of animals in their community. The event was well-attended and each family was celebrated as their pet’s name was introduced and announced to the audience. All the pets involved proudly marched around the parade route and families were so excited to show off their furry friends. Shakespeare, the library's resident plush Mutt-i-gree, joined in on the fun, too, of course!

The library has seen high engagement by families and children at their Mutt-i-grees community events, which makes us very happy! To see what other libraries around the country are doing to celebrate Mutt-i-grees, please visit
