Wynton Celebrates Birthday at Library


KENT—Ten young children and their parents enjoyed a festive story time in Kent Memorial Library’s Junior Room last Saturday to celebrate special guest dog Wynton’s second birthday.

Kent’s Animal Control Officer Lee Sohl, along with her husband and Assistant ACO Jim Sohl, have been bringing their dogs to the library for monthly story times since February 2022. The special visits are generally the first Saturday of the month.

During Wynton’s party, Lee Sohl read four birthday-themed picture books about both fictional and real dogs. Wynton Wonders: A Puppy Learns About His World is about the first year of Wynton’s life, which Sohl self-published this summer. 

After the story time, Sohl handed out animal crackers and homemade chocolates made in Wynton’s likeness. The next “Reading With Wynton and Wylie” will be on Jan. 6 at 11 a.m.
