Service Dog to Visit Library February 27, 2019

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 Conference Room on February 27th from 2:00 – 4:30pm to meet Gibson, the Sangamon County Courthouse Facility Dog and Certified Service Dog!

Gibson, a 3 ½ year old black lab, will be here for hugs, play time, and a little stress relief as our MS2s prepare for their next exam.  Gibson’s handler, Tami Richmond, and Diane Bell, the Director of Victim Services, will also be here to answer questions about their work with Gibson and Support Dogs Inc. Gibson joined the State’s Attorney’s staff in 2017 and has been featured in the State Journal Register for his comforting and calming presence with victims of abuse and violence, especially children.  His advanced training also allows him to sit in the courtroom during trials.  Stop by the Dirksen on Feb. 27th to meet Gibson and have some fun!
