Fun for All Ages!

THE ADVENTURES OF CLANCY,

CANINE FRIEND OF THE BILL MEMORIAL LIBRARY!

Clancy, the Great Pyrenees dog who makes his home next to the library,
has been visiting Groton Bank and beyond this summer, having all kinds of
adventures! He loves to explore the neighborhood and bark at crows.
Clancy has been sending us photos while he has been wandering ~
can you guess where he’s been?

JUNE 30 THROUGH JULY 28

Each Wednesday we will post the latest photo of Clancy on our Facebook page.

 

Your job is to try and guess where he is.
Look carefully because he’s very sneaky!!

 

He will be hiding mostly around Groton Bank and sometimes in the City.
He should be easy to spot. Sort of.

 

Pick up a Where’s Clancy sheet at the
library beginning June 22
or download a copy HERE.
Turn in the completed sheet by
Wednesday, August 4
to be entered in our raffle drawing!

Hi, I'm Clancy! For more great information and pictures of me, visit my page!
