announcing: ncpl's employee applause program

The display is located next to the first floor elevator near the women's restroom.

we'll miss you, major.

Our hearts are broken due to the loss of our favorite canine friend, Major, the tail-wagging tutor. Gentle, lovable Major was a certified therapy dog who visited the library each month so children could practice reading to him. His presence was such a bright spot in our children's department and we will all miss him.

Major was adopted by his mom, Lynnete, from G.R.I.N. (Golden Retrievers in Need). Lynnete continues to be very involved with G.R.I.N. and is a strong advocate for homeless Golden Retrievers. If you would like to honor Major's memory, we can't think of a better way than making a donation to this wonderful organization that has given him and so many other homeless Golden Retrievers a second chance.
