Big Red Dog Sighting


Birdwell Isle’s biggest resident, Clifford the Big Red Dog, will be visiting Lovett Memorial Library on Monday, May 22nd, at 10:00 am.

Thanks to Panhandle PBS, which brought children’s media icons such as Daniel Tiger and Curious George to the library in the past several years, Clifford will be able to meet with the children of the Pampa community.

Come enjoy the last story time of the spring season that will focus on the iconic pooch’s adventures and songs!

Tonie Bolin, the Children’s Librarian at the Lovett Memorial Library, gave more information on the event.

“Kids of all ages are welcome to attend the storytime. We will read stories and sing songs,” Bolin said. “The kids can go up to Clifford and get photos with him.”

Though this may be the last story time of the season, this won’t be the end of the reading fun.
