Storybook characters help reopen Creston Valley Public Library children’s area

Web Lead

The Creston Valley Public Library celebrated the reopening of the children’s area on Saturday, starting with a ribbon cutting by chief librarian Aaron Francis and Telus senior regional market manager Carly Jellis.

The section was overhauled with a $5,000 grant from Telus, as well as donations from other sponsors, and now includes educational activities and iPads for youngsters.

Members of Footlighters Theatre Society — Jennifer Adams (as Red Riding Hood), Gail Kitt (Fairy Godmother), Brian Lawrence (Aladdin) and Ian MacKay (Prince Charming) — attended the event as storybook characters to read to and entertain children attending the event. Telus donated $150 to Footlighters for their efforts, and the funds will be put toward their production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel in April.
