The Mulvane Public Library plans to host an outdoor movie night for pets and their owners from 6 to 9:15 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13 at the library, 408 N. 2nd Ave., Mulvane.

Before the movie starts, attendees are invited to try food from Luciano’s Strada food truck and visit animals from the Cowley County Humane Society for potential adoption from 6 to 8 p.m.

The Friends of Mulvane Library will hold a fundraiser by selling cookies and t-shirts from 6 to 8 p.m.

Also set up outside the library will be a do-it-yourself dog treat station from 6 to 7 p.m., and a pet fashion show immediately after. Registration for the fashion show will start at 6 p.m. on site.

Concluding the night will be an outdoor screening of The Secret Life of Pets 2, a 2019 animated children’s film about what pets do when their owners aren’t home. The showing will run from 7:45 to 9:15 p.m. 

Pets must be on a leash or in a carrier and have updated vaccinations.

Library staff encourage attendees to bring lawn chairs, blankets and some cash for food and refreshments. The event itself is free.

In the event of inclement weather, the library will host the event indoors. Pets will still be invited. 

In preparation for the pet-themed event, the library will allow patrons to pay off overdue fines by donating pet food between Sept. 3 and 14. Two dollars will be taken off overdue fines for every donated can of wet food or pound of dry pet food. 

Donations can be dropped off at the library during regular business hours or at the pet event.

The library is also asking patrons to submit photos of their pets, 5x7 inches or larger. Submitted photos will be displayed in the library’s children’s area from September to November.
