Innovative programming at Oak Bluffs Library


To the Editor:

On behalf of the staff and patrons of the Oak Bluffs Public Library, I extend our thanks to the staff of My Pet’s Vet in Vineyard Haven. Dr. Sauter and her crew brought their imaginations and medical knowledge to the library for an afternoon this January and turned our children’s room into a “Stuffed Animal Clinic.” From stuffed animal eye surgeries, broken legs, and upset tummies, she and her staff gave each stuffed animal the same care and attention they would a real live pet.

This event was a home run for us – more than 60 patrons came through our clinic, and nearly 35 stuffed animal patients were treated. We would not have been able to provide such a complete experience for the kids and their stuffed animal friends without this kind of collaboration from a local business.

We thank you, Dr. Sauter, and the entire team at My Pet’s Vet, for joining us in our effort to provide our young patrons with exciting and innovative programming. Thanks to you, our event was a tremendous success. Thank you for supporting the library.
