REMUS — Escaping the heat, children gathered at Wheatland Township Library on Thursday to participate in its summer reading program and visit with some furry friends.

Dr. James Scott, of Riversbend Animal Hospital in Rogers Heights, visited the library to speak with the children about being a veterinarian. Scott also brought two kittens, a dog and a goat, as well as skulls and examples of parasites commonly found in animals.

Throughout the summer, the library will hold similar events during its summer reading program to encourage children to visit the library. This year’s theme is “Dream Big.” Events are held from 1 to 2 p.m. every Thursday at the library, located at 207 Michigan Ave. in Remus.

For more information, contact the library at (989) 967-8271.
