Sunday, June 10, 2012 - Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

The 12th Annual Summer Reading Extravaganza took place on what I believe was the hottest day of the year yet, but the kids didn't care!

They were having a blast playing, crafting, building, digging, sliding, petting, and reading! All the events took place on the lawn of the main Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh in Oakland (right up the street from my house!)

Although this shot shows tons of tents and people, this about 1/8 of the total size of this event. It was HUGE!

Some cute dogs from the Western PA Humane Society were there to mingle with. These dogs serve as "therapy dogs."

Thanks for checking out the photos, Marsha! The dogs were just absolutely wonderful. I also adjusted the wording in the blog text to mention the "Western PA Humane Society" to accurately reflect where the dogs were from!
