National Pet Month

May is National Pet Month, so we're sharing recommendations from staff pets (and their humans).

Charlie ran the Fast and the Furriest 5K last year, and he was very excited to learn about the Read and Run book group. He's currently enjoying What I Talk About When I Talk About Running, by Haruki Murakami.
