We’re letting the dogs in! Bring your well-mannered canine companion(s) to the Main Library and join the fun! Dress your pet (and yourself ) in your best costumes and strut your stuff. Show off your pet’s best tricks. Visit Rescue Row to meet local rescue groups, find your next pet or volunteer to help. Enjoy fun photo ops, free dog biscuits, a Pooch Pool Party, and our Krypto Look-Alike Contest. Don’t miss an afternoon of doggone fun times at your library!
Saturday, August 26 • 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Krypto Look-Alike Contest
Do you think your dog looks like Krypto? Or do you think Krypto really should have looked like your dog? Enter your pooch in our Krypto Look-Alike Contest and join the fun! Enter online starting July 3 by posting your pooch on Instagram with #CPLKrypto and briefly explain your dog’s superpower. Then, vote on your favorites by liking other doggie photos. Bring your dogs to the library on Dog Day and enjoy the reveal at 3:00 p.m.
