Patchogue-Medford Library will not support the deadly Iditarod dogsled race!

After hearing from Humane Long Island, the Patchogue-Medford Library has pledged that today will be the last time former Iditarod musher Karen Land will speak at the library and has apologized for promoting the Iditarod in materials ahead of her visit. Ms. Land will not be permitted to promote the Iditarod and her talk will be prefaced with a statement from the library director notifying patrons that the library does not support the mistreatment of animals for the race. Leaflets from our friends at PETA will also be made available to attendees who want to learn about how the Iditarod has killed more than 150 dogs and how they can take action to stop it.
