Dog Days of Summer

The Crest Hill Branch is going to the dogs on Saturday, August 24th. We will use our extensive outdoor yard between 10 am and 2 pm to feature a variety of rescue organizations, veterinary services, and small business retailers, as well as Library-related activities like a bandanna station, cooling stations, peanut butter licking competition, costume & trick contests, mini agility course, and raffles to celebrate National Dog Day, which is held on August 26th of each year. The event is sponsored by PetSmart Joliet, and they will have doggie swag bags for the first 200 people!

That's right - you can bring your dog to the Library on Dog Days of Summer! And, who knows, if you don’t already have a dog, you just might go home with your new best friend.

PetSmart, Joliet has generously donated "doggie swag bags" to the first 200 attendees! There will also be raffles where you have the chance to win a variety of dog-related prizes! Make sure to Like our Facebook page to stay up to date with what's going on with this event:

Well-behaved owners and their dogs current w/their shots are welcome. No retractable leashes, please.

PetSmart, Joliet
