Pasadena Public Library is taking advantage of this year’s Summer Reading Challenge animal-oriented theme to “give back” to one of our long-time partners. For years, the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA has provided us with the popular “Barks and Books” Program for beginning readers, as well as other special displays and events. During the weeks of June 23-June 29, and July 21-27, purchase an item from the list below and drop it off at any PPL Branch. We’ll deliver your gift to this organization that has done so much to help animals and to support those who care for them. Adults will earn an entry toward the weekly prize drawing!
