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.

Title
Once Upon a Town: The Miracle of the North Platte Canteen
Author
Bob Greene
Review
This is admittedly a "feel good" book, but also a reminder of what incredible things we as a country can do at a local level. A factual account of North Platte, Nebraska's WWII canteen based at the local railroad station. Supplied and operated solely by citizens and private business, the canteen cheered on millions of boys and men heading off to war, and years later, welcomed innumerable returning soldiers on their way home - wherever home happened to be.
The author interviews the men and women who were part of this incredible effort, as well as the now aging soldiers who still weep at the memories of a small town so willing to sacrifice and support and love them all.  Reserve a copy!

Title
The Hunger Games
Author
Suzanne Collins
Review
"Every year in the ruins of North America, 24 teens are forced to enter the Hunger Games. Only one winner survives. Every moment is televised." Reality TV - how far is too far? Governments have been using hunger and food as a power tool for centuries and that will probably never change. This is a thought provoking look at a future North America where the government uses food and the threat of killing our children in order to keep peace. A word of warning, this is not a book for the light-hearted as there is graphic teen on teen violence.   Reserve a copy!

Title
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!
