As we wrote the library application for the Curriculum, we realized that libraries — whether in the neighborhood or part of a school — vary in size, resources, and demographics, as well as reflect the communities they serve. So we designed the Curriculum’s library kit as a guide and inspiration that libraries can customize to meet the needs, characteristics, and interests of their constituents. The kit features imaginative strategies and materials to engage children, teens, and families, using books, activities, crafts, and stories that impart the principles of social-emotional learning while addressing the issues affecting homeless animals. Some libraries have the Mutt-i-grees puppet in circulation; some feature books about shelter dogs. Often, librarians collaborate with local animal shelters and use Mutt-i-grees in the Library with middle school and high school patrons or as part of their afterschool programming.
