Libraries all over Kansas have embraced Mutt-i-grees! Thanks to support from state librarian Jo Budler, who first learned about the initiative at the New England Library Association Annual Conference in October 2013, Kansas libraries will receive state support if they choose to implement Mutt-i-grees programming.
Mutt-i-grees staff attended the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting & Exhibits in January 2014 to promote Mutt-i-gees in the Library. Librarians from libraries around the country stopped by the exhibitor table to learn more about the Mutt-i-grees Movement and sign up for a complimentary kit.
Randall Library in Stow, MA, has a new mascot, and his name is Ruff! Patrons can check him out for a week and show him their daily lives. He has already traveled to Vermont and has met some friendly dogs and cats. And, of course, he’s read a lot of great books! Follow Ruff's Adventures on the library’s website as he travels to the homes of Randall Library's patrons.
