The Everett Public Library has gone to the dogs.

It’s all part of the Everett Reads! event with the featured book, “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein, which is written from the dog’s point of view.

Head to the main library from 2 to 3:30 p.m. today to meet Zep, an Everett Police tracking dog and his handler, officer Brandon Gill. The officer describes what it’s like to work with his four-legged partner, a German shepherd, who helps police find suspects and suss out clues.

The library will show the film “Hachi: A Dog’s Tale” at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday in the main auditorium. “Hachi” stars Richard Gere in the moving story of a faithful dog who continues to wait for his master at the train station every day for nine years after the man dies. The movie is based on the book “Hachiko: The True Story of a Loyal Dog” by Pamela Turner.

Wondering how to choose the right dog for you and your family? The Everett Animal Shelter is bringing adoptable dogs to the main library auditorium at 2 p.m. Feb. 23. Experts will be there to help match up prospective owners with compatible pets.

Teens can meet author Garth Stein at 2 p.m. March 8 at the main library. Stein will answer questions and offer tips to young wannabe writers.

Then at 7 p.m. March 8 the library is hosting a discussion and book-signing with Stein at the Everett Historic Theatre, 2911 Colby Ave. “The Art of Racing in the Rain” lists at $14.99.

The Everett Public Library is at 2702 Hoyt Ave., Everett. Call 425-257-8000 for more information or go to www.epls.org for other Everett Reads! events.
