Burlington library offers puppy rooms for studying students

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML | Hamilton News

It can be a stressful time of year for high school students preparing for exams but the Burlington Library may have a solution.
This year the exam cram study hall program will be bringing in some furry friends from the Lion’s Foundation of Canada Dog Guides.
Students will be given the opportunity to pet and play with puppies as a method of stress relief.
The foundation’s Jenny Gladish says the puppies also benefit because socialization is an important part of their training for a future owner.
Puppy rooms were first introduced in 2012 by universities as a creative way to deal end of term stress and promote mental health.
The  exam cram sessions with the Canada dog guides will be held on January 22nd at the Central branch in the Builders Room and on January 24th at the Aldershot branch.
