The Toledo Lucas County Public Library (TLCPL) knows that dogs aren’t just man’s best friend – they are creatures who can comfort, bring joy and help children read. Through a series of dog and animal themed programs, the Library is seeking to connect children and teens to the animals who make our lives better. In addition, the Library is continuing its partnership to issue dog licenses for Lucas County dogs at all 20 of its locations.
