  1. The Friends of the North End Library and the librarians are having a terrible time with a couple of guys with dogs that use the front garden and refuse to clean up or go elsewhere.
    The location is Parmenter Street and we need help on this from neighbors, relatives or Ruff members.
    Thank you!
