Greyhounds in the Library greyhound reading

How the Program Works

“Greyhounds in the Library” is a variation of traditional “meet-and-greets” and links kids with adoption groups across the country. 

Featuring a live reading from the illustrated book Pele’s Forever Home by Darylynn Ayala, each program is intended to help kids learn to read and to appreciate the beauty of greyhounds. 

Gatherings are hosted by volunteers and their greyhounds at local libraries, at community centers or at other favorable locations.  Information is provided about local adoption opportunities, and each child receives a free book and a “Save the Greyhounds” wristband to take home.
