\"Jon

Jon Hamm with LN staff writer, Amanda Dahl.

Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning actor Jon Hamm came to support his hometown library, St. Louis County Library, with back-to-back fundraising events on July 22. He began the day with a sold-out speaking engagement at the library\u2019s Lindbergh headquarters, where the star of Mad Men talked with local novelist Curtis Sittenfeld. The author of Prep, soon to be a show on HBO, interviewed Hamm about growing up in St. Louis and storytelling through film and television.

Later that evening, Andy and Mary Ann Srenco hosted a private reception for Hamm inside their home, giving donors a unique opportunity to mingle with the celebrity. Among the guests was local hero Jon Brough. The retired Belleville police sergeant was shot in the face in the line of duty while attempting to protect his fellow officers from a suspect with a shotgun. Brough, a fan of Hamm, named the actor\u2019s performance in Bridesmaids as one of his favorites. Hamm thanked him for his service, stopping to talk and pose for a few photos with Brough and his wife, Wendy.

Funds raised from both events went to support the St. Louis County Library and St. Louis Public Library\u2019s new program, Career Online High School, which enables adult learners, age 25 and older, to earn their high school diploma, as well as a career certificate. Learn more at slcl.org.

Catch Hamm in the crime thriller Baby Driver, currently in theaters. Other film and television credits include 30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Million Dollar Arm and The Town.

\"Wag!
Wag! App

As the on-demand market has expanded from Netflix to Uber, it comes with no surprise that the timely phenomenon is now used to benefit the lives of pets and their owners.

Wag!, with the slogan of \u201ca dog\u2019s best friend,\u201d is the new way for busy St. Louisans to walk their beloved pups. Every day from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Wag! users are able to book a Wag! Walker to safely walk their dog. Similar to Uber or Lyft, the app shows nearby Wag! Walkers, and a request can be filled within minutes. According to Wag!\u2019s website, these fully vetted walkers are tested on dog-handling experience \u201cto ensure you get top quality people you can trust and feel comfortable walking your dog.\u201d

Already established in Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Portland and other cities around the country, Wag! brings a unique app feature that allows owners to watch the progress of the walk. Each walk also includes an activity report that shows miles walked, time of the walk, and if your dog went to the bathroom. Sitting and boarding options are also available, making it a little bit easier to leave your pup at home as you jet off for a summer vacation.

If interested, owners can request the same Wag! Walker so their dog(s) can get to know them better. Each walk is focused on one dog - no group walks like in the movies - unless requested by the owner. To add more peace of mind, walks, boardings and sittings from Wag! are also insured and bonded.

Rates vary by area, but pricing for a 30-minute walk averages around $20.
