Buena Park Reads Together 2014!

Weekends with Daisy

This April, The Buena Park Library will be holding its fourth annual community wide event: Buena Park Reads Together!

This program is designed to bring our community together through interactive programs, discussions and family fun inspired by this year’s chosen book, Weekends with Daisy by Sharon Kahn Luttrell.

In Weekends with Daisy, a volunteer service dog trainer tells the story of her relationships with an endearing yellow Labrador puppy and its felon partner in the Prison PUP program.

Join us this April for a month-long celebration of service animals and their caretakers, and the joy that animals bring to our lives!
