Ernie wants to READ with you!
Ernie is the new READ dog at Presque Isle District Library.
Ernie’s full name is Ernie Bishop Gillett (named after the cab driver in “It’s a Wonderful Life”) and he is six years old.
He formerly worked with the Community Action Network in Ann Arbor where he listened to children ages 6 to 12 read books aloud in financially underserved communities.
He is a wheaten terrier and has a stay-at-home sister Rosie, who is a border collie mix. He met her when she was a foster pup and asked if she could come live with him permanently. He enjoys his favorite chew toy, shaped like a jack, and loves playing with other dogs.
To schedule a reading time with this loving pooch, please contact the library at 989-734-2477.
He’s a great listener!
