Paws, the Akron-Summit County Public Library’s mascot,  came with Miss Melissa to Rushwood Elementary school in Nordonia Hills to talk the students about the Mind, Body, & Sole Read At Your Own Pace summer reading program.  Rushwood also does Millionaire Minutes and they are trying to read 2 million minutes for next year.  Paws took the time to take a picture with the top Millionaire Minutes readers from the 2014/2015 school year.
