Library Update - August 25th 2008

Just in time for tonight's council meeting, an update from the folks at the Public Library.

"The TD Summer Reading Game has only one week left!
Over 750 logbooks have been distributed and every week children still come to claim prizes from the Laugh out Loud Loot. On Saturday August 23rd we had two parties for children who have completed 15 hours or more of reading. At the parties we played many hilarious games, and thanks to all the donations we received, every child was able to bring home a door prize and a goody bag. Pizzas were donated from Little Caesars, Busters Pizza and Pizza Experts. We had an awesome time!

Partners In Reading
Partners in Reading wrapped up on the 16th with a party to congratulate all participants. Over 100 volunteers and students participated this year. It was a great success! Thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers for their time and dedication to the program.

Fall Fundraiser: Franklin the Turtle Comes to Grande Prairie
Mark your calendar for Franklin’s Family Christmas Concert, an evening of fun in support of the Grande Prairie Public Library
Christmas is here, but Franklin is having trouble finding his Christmas spirit. "Where are all the presents?" he wonders. So Franklin's woodland friends decide to help him out by planning a party! Beaver takes care of entertainment while Bear cooks the food, sampling everything he makes. Fox gathers Christmas decorations for the perfect Christmas tree that Franklin must find all by himself!

Join Franklin and friends as they get into magical adventures with a dancing snowman, a wacky gingerbread cookie, and a trio of playful elves. Celebrate the holiday season with lots of audience participation, singing, dancing and the jolliest Christmas spirit ever!
