Service Dog to Visit Library February 28, 2018

February 7, 2018

The Library’s February Study Break will have a special guest in addition to the usual treats and coffee.
Stop by the Dirksen Confer-ence Room on February 28th from 3:00 – 4:30pm to meet Gibson, the Sangamon County Courthouse Facility Dog and Certified Service Dog!

Gibson, a 2 ½ year old black lab, will be here with his handlers, Diane Bell (Director of Victim Services), Tami Rich-mond and Holli Gleason, to discuss the State’s Attorney’s work with Gibson and answer questions about the training staff received from Support Dogs Inc. Gibson joined the State’s Attorney’s staff in 2017 and was re-cently featured in the State Journal Register for his comforting and calming presence with victims of abuse and violence. Whether laying at a person’s feet during a hearing or next to a child during a difficult interview, Gibson has a gift for under-standing and helping people.

Stop by the Dirksen on Feb. 28th to meet Gibson and learn more!
