Library therapy pets

There’s nothing quite like spending quality time with a friendly, furry pal. Come into the Library and spend time with Rusty and his friends to ease your study stress.

Have a cuddle, take a selfie

Our Library dogs love spending time with students at the Library. Rusty (a Kelpie cross) and his friends, Muppet (a Maltese cross), Sam and Heidi (Labrador siblings), and Elly (white Kelpie cross) love cuddles, playtime and selfies and are always happy to make new friends.

We've teamed up with their owners at the School of Veterinary and Life Sciences and Animal Hospital to spread good vibes once a month at the Geoffrey Bolton Library. You'll see lots of smiles on faces as our dogs play fetch or get belly rubs - there's no way you can miss the action in our foyer when they visit.

So if you're feeling a little stressed or missing your own pet, stop by for a pat or a cuddle with our Library Dogs.

Woof woof! Will you come and play ball with me in the Library?
