Following a major overhaul, the Creston Valley Public Library’s children’s section will celebrate its grand reopening from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. March 21, featuring demonstrations of new tablets, stories, and snacks and refreshments.
The upgrade to the library’s technology for children was made possible by a Telus donation.
“At Telus, we follow a simple philosophy of ‘we give where we live’, with a focus on providing support to local causes that will empower youth through technology, ensuring our next generation is set up for success,” said Liz Sauvé of Telus media relations. “With our $5,000 donation, the library purchased tablets and mounted them in an area where they could be used independently, or by groups of youth and children working together. The tablets also have kid friendly learning apps installed, meaning even our youngest community members can get in on the fun.”
The event will also include a visit by storybook characters — Prince Charming, Aladdin, Fairy Godmother and Red Riding Hood plan to attend — courtesy of Footlighters Theatre Society, who will read stories and offer a chance for photos.
