  • Katie, a bloodhound certified by Therapy Dogs International, has a story read to her by Vivian Miller, 6, of Garberville during Family Read to a Dog at the Trinidad Library on Saturday. The dog and owner Claudia Myers of Dow’s Prairie are at the library either the second or third Saturday of each month from 1 to 3 p.m. Children can get a free 20-minute session to read with Katie one-on-one. To schedule, call 707-677-0227. Children who read to animals can improve both reading and communication skills, as well as gain comfort and confidence in their reading aloud. It is open to all reading abilities and parents or guardians are welcome to read with children that still need assistance. (Shaun Walker — The Times-Standard)
