Elkins-Randolph County Public Library

Find out the difference between fur bearing dogs and hair bearing dogs. Do you know which your dog is? And how do you think you can keep them cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter? Which brush do you use for your dog and why? Too much shedding? We will show you how to cut down on 80 to 90 percent of the shedding!! 

Check back often for upcoming events and services for all ages.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
