Summer is a great time to fire up the grill, catch the latest sporting event, and relax with a light read. It’s also a common time to travel. Are you leaving the country this summer? In addition to your passport, be sure to bring some great information from UAPL!

Puppy Love

We love our pets. From the puppy Super Bowl and the Westminster Kennel Club that make us smile on dreary winter days, to grumpy cats on YouTube who have their own agents, our pets own our hearts, our time and our attention.

If you’re interested in learning more about our animal companions, the Upper Arlington Public Library has engaging and informative resources for you. Here are just a few:

  • For an authoritative overview on the domestication of dogs and cats, see the article ‘ Dogs and Cats’ in the database Grzimek’s Animal Life Encyclopedia.
  • From the Science Reference Center, in the magazine Scholastic Math, read the article ‘We *Heart* Pets’ and then take the quiz on pet ownership in the USA.  
  • From the National Geographic Virtual Library database, enjoy ‘ Mix, Match and Morph: How to Build a Dog’.
