Kids! Bring your favorite book and read to a dog! Parents: Does your child love dogs? Is your child a reluctant reader or has difficulty reading aloud? This pilot program, Paws for Reading, gives struggling readers an opportunity to improve literacy skills in a non-judgmental environment by reading to trained therapy dogs. Fun and effective, this technique helps children gain confidence and improve reading skills. Children who are proficient readers are also welcome. With enough interest, this will become a regular monthly program starting in January.

The Boy Detective Fails
Author
Joe Meno
Review
A feel good book; in that the events within will make you feel good about your own life.
It follows the story of a man who used to solve crimes with his sister, until she committed suicide.
After leaving a mental institute, he attempts to rekindle his detective skill by investigating the death of his sister.
A great book to delve into the world of someone who's lost sight of the meaning to their life; and filled with wonderfully dry humor.  Reserve a copy!
