The C.O.W. bus traveled north to the city of Grande Prairie for two days of programming. The bus parked outside the Lions Learning Centre in the morning and then outside the Grande Prairie Public Library for the remainder of our visit. We were busy both days with parents playing with their children and learning about what the C.O.W. bus and local literacy agencies have to offer.
The Legacy Library was presented the Mayor of Grande Prairie and representatives of the Grande Prairie Public Library. The books will be divided between the Grande Prairie Public Library and the Grande Prairie Council for Lifelong Learning.
The C.O.W. bus then traveled to the town of Beaverlodge and parked outside the new Beaverlodge Library. The bus was host to the families interested in learning about family literacy and spending time together engaging in the different activities.
The Legacy Library was presented to the Mayor of Beaverlodge, the Beaverlodge Public Library, and the Grande Prairie Council for Lifelong Learning. The books will be available to the community through the collection at the Beaverlodge Public Library.
It was on to Sexsmith the next day to participate in the Chautauqua day parade and fair. After the parade, the bus was parked downtown beside other great attractions, inviting many curious fair-goers onto the bus to learn about family literacy.
The Legacy Library was presented to the Mayor and the Shannon Municipal Library in Sexsmith. The books will be available to the community as part of the Shannon Municipal Library collection.
