The Humane Society of Carroll County comes to the Mount Airy branch of the Carroll County Public Library to show you the importance of learning basic pet care, animal safety, and wellness.
Sara Szymanski, the coordinator of this program, stated in an email interview that this is the first time the library has hosted this program.
Szymanski stated that the Mount Airy library partnered with the Humane Society for this and other programs in the past and this particular one is part of the Summer Discovery. This year's theme is Build a Better World.
"We are hoping that the program will help improve community knowledge of pet care, animal safety, and overall compassion for animals," stated Szymanski.
This event starts at 1 p.m. and it is for all ages.
