Did you know that the Lake Villa District Library is one of Jeep’s favorite places to visit?
Starting on January 2nd (which by the way just happens to be Jeep’s very first birthday) the library’s winter reading program begins. This year’s theme A Winters’s Tail has Jeep’s own tail wagging with approval because the library will be raising money to support Save-a-Pet, a local animal rescue organization. Save-a-Pet is the largest no-kill cat and dog rescue in Lake County.
It is easy to participate! All you have to do is stop by the library and pick up a reading log at any service desk. Simply record the time you spend reading or being read to and the Friends of the Lake Villa Library will donate up to $5 per person to benefit Save-a-Pet. You can enjoy some great books (Jeep hopes you read a couple about dogs) and help out her furry friends at the same time. This is what Jeep calls a double win. Why, it is almost as good as having double dewclaws and double coats of fur.
If you and your family are looking for a pet, representatives from Save-a-Pet will be at the library on Saturday, January 28 from noon until 3 pm with dogs and cats looking for their “fur-ever” homes.
The Save-a-Pet reading fundraiser at the library wraps up January 31st. Jeep is pretty confident that her kids friends will come through to Save-a-Pet or two!
