In Pincher Creek, the public library is housed in a large complex that includes the recreation centre and the swimming pool. Many families planned their visit to the bus to coincide with their regular lessons or trip to the library.
Staff from the local literacy group and the Parent Link Centre set up a display inside the doors of the complex where they could encourage families to visit the bus, enter their names to win a draw prize and learn about family literacy programs they offer. The Legacy Library was given to the Parent Link Centre in a presentation attended by representatives of the local elementary schools and Board members of the Centre.
Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to plan our visit. We really enjoyed meeting so many young families from your community.
