The C.O.W. bus spent the week of May 15th in Cold Lake. The city was an exciting place to be as there was a large international training mission going on at the 4 Wing Military Base. Languages from all over the world were being spoken throughout town.
The bus was hosted by the Cold Lake Public Library, in partnership with other community agencies involved in delivering literacy programming. The bus parked in a different location each day. One of the partners offered milk and cookies for the children to ice and eat.
The Legacy Library presentation was made over lunch at the library. Many Library Board Members and Staff were present. The books were presented to the Mayor and the Director of the Parent Link Centre, and will be housed in the Parent Link Centre for use in their ‘learn through play’ programs.
What parents and participants have said about the program
“I wish I could have come here when I was little.”
“This was a very inspirational outing. Lots of great ideas for everyone.”
