Long-running hobby night instills camaraderie

Kids were delighted this past Wednesday to attend Story PALS -- a weekly, free-of-charge program offered at eight public libraries across Calgary.
Story PALS was introduced to the city roughly five years ago and looks to increase literacy of children between the ages of six to 12. The program's unique draw comes from dogs that are brought in to help the kids read.
