The Blue Ridge Library staff planned a fantastic trip to their community! Many families from Blue Ridge stayed on the bus for hours and they were able to look through all of our resources and talk about family literacy and parenting with the C.O.W. bus facilitators. During supper at the library, the children and youth from the summer reading program put on a wonderful puppet show.
The Legacy Library to the Blue Ridge Library and will become part of their collection.
The C.O.W. bus traveled to Mayerthorpe the next day, where we set up our programming at the Mayerthorpe Diamond Centre. The town was hosting an Early Childhood Wellness Fair. We met many families on the bus who were interested in family literacy and enjoyed their time on the bus.
The Legacy Library was presented to the staff of the Mayerthorpe Public Library. The books will become part of the collection there and will be available to the public.
What parents and participants have said about the program
