UPDATE: The 'Canines & Cats on Campus' program regrets they must cancel this event and will not be visiting Western Libraries this quarter. They apologize for the inconvenience and added they hope to see everyone in June, and they wish students well on their finals.
Western Libraries will once again be joined by members of the “Canines & Cats on Campus” registered therapy animal program from Monday, March 9 through Thursday, March 19.
Teams of humans and animals will be located in the gallery space at the end of the Mann Family Skybridge on the Wilson side of the library off and on between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. during both the week preceding and the week of final exams.
During this two-week period, this space will be reserved exclusively for the registered Canines & Cats on Campus therapy animal program, and animals who are not official volunteers with this program are not permitted in this area. Additionally, Western Libraries would like to remind everyone that while ADA service animals are welcome in the library, pets may not be brought into library facilities at any time.
For more information about the upcoming Canines & Cats on Campus visit, a schedule which includes the names of the volunteers, photos of the animals, and the times when they will be available for visiting, will be posted on an easel in the designated gallery area beginning Monday, March 9.
Remember to stop by the library to say hi or de-stress when you are in need of a break from studying for finals, working on projects, or writing those last few papers!
