Canada: University of Victoria’s Law Library Now Allows Students to Borrow a Canine Companion
From Global News:
The University of Victoria’s law library is turning the page on innovation by introducing a new item students can borrow: a dog.
Echo, a four-and-a-half-year-old black lab, can now be checked out from the library for 30 minutes at a time to give students a stress-relieving break with man’s best friend. She even comes with a “Bark-Code” and a call number: K9.
