When: 01/17/2013 3:30PM - 4:30PM
Location: Rustburg Library, 684 Village Highway, Rustburg, VA 24588
Description: Campbell County Public Library would like to invite children ages 5 and up to the “Paws to Read” program. Paws to Read is a very simple concept. Children read to “Bailey the Library Dog” in a positive nonthreatening and fun environment. Bailey listens and doesn’t tease, laugh or joke at the child. Many children have already benefited from the program and the opportunity to read to such a non-critical, caring listener!

Children can come to the Rustburg library every Thursday from 3:30 ~ 4:30 and read to Bailey. This program is free of charge and is open to the public.

Registration is not required to attend Paws to Read.
