Spending an afternoon with a good book is enjoyable and relaxing, but more so when done with man’s best friend.

New Lenox children can look forward to the experience, thanks to the New Lenox Public Library’s Bow Wow Reading Pups, scheduled throughout the summer as part of the library’s Paws to Read summer reading program. A doggie meet and greet was held Wednesday, June 11.
