Cats and avid and aspiring readers can help each other out at a new program in Fort St John.

"Reading to Cats" is a partnership between the Fort St John public library and the city's SPCA. For a couple of hours every Friday, people of all ages can drop by with a book to read to cats being held at the shelter.

Listen to the full interview with Kirsten Barkved, program coordinator at the library, to find out what drove her to set up the program.
