As part of Family Literacy Week,  Arlee Venier, childrens librarian from Castlegar & District Public Library, made special storytime visits to all Kindergarten classrooms and early learning programs. During her visits Arlee shared some of her favourite

stories and gave out information on our library and local  literacy programs.  Our Sing & Swim event was on Saturday, January 28th at the pool,  where families joined Mother Goose facilitators in the pool for some singing and rhymes. Over 20 parents and

22 children participated. This event was offered by Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy and Castlegar & District Recreation Complex. For more info on local literacy programs call Alana at 304-6862
