On September 17, 2007, the C.O.W bus traveled to Whitecourt where we were host by Write Soon Literacy. They organized displays and gave away community information to those who attended the event. The Legacy Library was presented to Write Soon Literacy and will be housed in their building.
The next day the C.O.W bus traveled to Blue Ridge and was hosted by the Blue Ridge Public Library. They organized snacks in the library and gave away community information to parents; this was a wonderful complement to the C.O.W. bus programming. The Legacy Library was presented to the Blue Ridge Public Library and will become part of their collection.
On September 19, 2007, the C.O.W bus returned to Whitecourt and visited the Parent Link Centre Just Kidin’ Childcare Drop-In Centre. The Parent Link Centre hosted the event and the C.O.W bus programming was well attended. The Legacy Library was presented to the Parent Link Centre and will be used by their program participants.
On our final day in this area we traveled to Mayerthorpe. The Mayerthorpe Public Library hosted the visit and they gave away free family library memberships inside the library. The Legacy Library will become part of the library’s collection.
