Pet Adoption Awareness Day

In-Person at Hackley Park

Saturday, June 4 from 12:00-3:00pm

Hackley Library is teaming up with area shelters to bring you Pet Adoption Awareness Day in Hackley Park!  During the event, you can meet pets that are up for adoption, ask questions about adopting/fostering, and kids can grab some take and make crafts!  If you’d like, you can bring a donation for an area shelter – for each item you donate, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a gift card to PetSmart!  Donations can be brought the day of the event, or to Hackley Library through the month of May.

*Although this is an adoption awareness event, Cober’s Canines will have on-site adoption available (pre-approval through an adoption application is required ahead of time – the application link can be found on the events calendar at hackleylibrary.org).

For more details on the event, visit hackleylibrary.org.  Free.

What in the world is a ZINE? If you have ever asked yourself this question, join us at the library on June 21st and learn the interesting history of zines, how to make them, and what you can do with them once you’ve created one.
