Deputy Barney Fife owned by Lynda Dudek, was chosen to be on the back cover of the Baxter Library Annual Report. He is one of three dogs in the after school reading program.  Barney, Clancy (Arlene Myslinski) and Couisette (John Porter) join the children for an hour of sharing stories and love once a month.  This was a week long pilot program during the summer. The program proved to be a success with both children and parents.  We were asked to continue hearing children read stories monthly. What a joy to share this special time in a child’s life when books are starting to open the world to them. ~ Lynda Dudek
