The Book Bus is returning to communities. We are developing new schedules, so check the schedule page or Facebook for updated regular runs. Joanne posts to Facebook, so that is probably the best for up-to-date info.
Sundays are at the Hazelton Farmers’ Market til the end of September. The new Little Book Houses will also be stocked regularly. We look forward to bringing books and supporting literacy in our communities again.
Welcome Joanne Saunders as our new Book Bus Driver/Outreach Worker.
She will be contacting people in the various communities regarding the Book Bus and establishment of Little Book Houses.
HSS students are building 20 Little Book Houses. We are asking for community input and suggestions for locations to install them throughout the region.
We’re sad to see Nancy go and give a big thank you to her for the work she has done with the book bus.
