Lisa Laird and her dog Stanley were part of the Parker Library Summer Reading program. Laird, who is a ventriloquist along with Stuart the puppet, fun stories, a little magic, and Stanley’s dog tricks, had the audience laughing.
Another great program that day was “Read with Stanley the Dog.” Kids and parents (individually or as a family) were able to reserve a time to Read with Stanley at the library. Each group could pick out a book or two to read to Stanley or have Laird read, and they could pet Stanley while reading. Everyone enjoyed this program.
