Camano Library grand opening

The Camano Island Library is opening Saturday with a ceremony at 9:30 a.m. at 848 N.

The space is larger and the collection of books, computers and furniture also has expanded. There’s a children’s room, reading room and a multi-purpose room. The library will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. The library will be closed Sundays.

Residents of Snohomish County can get their dog (or cat) microchipped and have their pooch take the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizenship Test.

Registration for the run starts at 8:30 a.m. and costs $10. Dogs must wear non-retractable leashes and behave well. Prizes will be awarded in several categories.
