38 year-old Andrea *Petrosky*
called 9-1-1 after allegedly choking
her six year-old son -- and then
putting him in the bathtub.

*Petrosky* used to live in South
Roanoke, on Stanely Avenue.

Former neighbors refused to go on
camera -- but did say the family was
nice, and somewhat sociable.

A friend says the family moved to
Bristol after the husband accepted a
job there-- and the oldest daughter
went off to U-V-A.

Petrosky is being held without
bond.

She faces charges of attempted
capital murder and felony child abuse.

Many of the branches in the city
and county are overcrowded and
under-utilized.

Leaders have traveled to other
branches, such as Maricopa County,
Arizona to get ideas of how to improve
the branches.

The study favors "super-branches"
-- over a central library -- and says
the city and county could save millions
on needed improvements if they go in
together.
