Title: Paws to Read
When: 10/04/2012 3:30PM - 4:30PM
Location: Staunton River Memorial Library, 500 Washington St, Altavista, VA
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 “Cody the Library Dog” in a positive nonthreatening and fun environment. Cody 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 Staunton River Memorial Library every Thursday from 3:30 ~ 4:30 and read to Cody. This program is free of charge and is open to the public.

Registration is not required to attend Paws to Read.

    iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Four former guards of a U.S. security company hired to protect diplomats were found guilty Wednesday in the September 2007 shooting deaths of 14 Iraqi civilians and the wounding of 17 others.

  • Huge Academic Scandal at UNC Involved Athletes

    The school estimates that half of the students were athletes, mostly from the UNC's basketball and football teams.

    Wednesday's report goes much further than when the scandal first came to light in 2011, which initially stated that it was only about academics.

    This revelation, however, drags the UNC's vaunted athletic program into the morass.

    According to the investigation conducted...
