The Giving Tree at Troy-Miami County Public Library will be accepting donations throughout the Big Read to benefit 4 Paws For Abilities. The library will be collecting the following items: New or Used/Clean towels and washcloths, Dog Toys (Kong or Nylabone Brands), or Dog Food and Treats (Pup-Peroni, Milk-Bone, or Kibbles ‘N Bits Brands). Stop by to donate anytime during March and April.
The library has been providing tax forms for decades. Unfortunately, the IRS is providing fewer forms for us to dispense and there are sometimes delays in our receiving them. We will do our best to assist you as we are able at the Information Desk, just a reminder that we cannot provide any tax advice. Please visit the City of Troy website for city tax forms and instructions.
The Big Read IS GOING TO THE DOGS!
We’re reading The Underdogs: Children, Dogs, and the Power of Unconditional Love by Melissa Fay Greene. This is the engaging, true story of the founding of 4 Paws for Ability, a unique service dog organization based in Xenia, Ohio. You can pick up your own copy of the Big Read or call the library at 937-339-0502 ext. 112 for more information. Read the book, and then join us at Troy-Miami County Public Library on Monday, March 26 at 6:30 p.m. for a lively discussion exploring the amazing relationship between canines and humans. More information is also available at http://bigread.org/.
