Pups On The Plaza

Central Library's plaza is going to the dogs! In honor of National Dog Day, the Brooklyn Public Library is teaming up with Dog Parker and Slobbr to celebrate man's best friend. They'll have dog-themed activities and story time for kids, plus treats and wading pools for our four-legged patrons. If you're looking for a furever friend, rescue groups will have adoptable dogs available. Dogs and dog lovers of all ages are welcome!

Fashion Show at 11am

Dress up your pup in summer gear (bonus points for a literary twist!) to compete for prizes, including a Dog Parker membership with free minutes, dog treats from Leela Ryan, a leash and collar from Found My Animal and, of course, a Brooklyn Public Library tote bag. 

Fun for dogs & dog lovers!
