Military pets in need of temporary homes

A recent story in The News Tribune brings attention to a common question our military service men and women ask themselves when they face deployment. What to do with Fido or Fluffy while they're away?

If you'd like to offer your home on a temporary basis to pets of deployed military personnel, visit the following websites to learn more:

Pierce County Library System makes it easier to visit a museum

Now's your chance to visit three Pierce County museums for free with the Pierce County Library's new museum passes.

Children’s Museum of Tacoma – Play Pass. Children test their independence and gain self-confidence through the arts, sciences and creative play, and adults find tools to understand and support children’s learning.

Tacoma Art Museum – Art Access Pass. Visitors discover paintings, prints, sculptures and art-making activities.

Washington State History Museum – History Pass. Participants learn about the state’s unique people and places through interactive exhibits, theatrical storytelling, high-tech displays and dramatic artifacts.
The passes are available on a first come, first served basis for three weeks at any Pierce County Library. Pierce County Library customers have access to these passes for free admission as part of a cooperative partnership project among the museums, Pierce County Library, Tacoma Public Library and Puyallup Public Library.
