Getting a new book at a book swap and cuddling up on some comfy cushions to read stories together.
For centuries stories have been used to pass on the traditions and values that families and society consider to be valuable. Stories – whether told to individuals or groups – form the basis of much of our communication with each other; stories build links, identify common threads, and help us share experiences. Stories influence our lives. Good stories engage us and keep us spellbound for hours.
Join the Maple Ridge Public Library and the Literacy Committee on Earth Day – April 20th from 10 AM – 2 PM at the Storytelling Tent at Earth Day. Help the planet out, bring a book, and exchange it for a new-to-you book the Community Literacy table. New reading material is just an exchange away. Or, settle into a comfy cushion and listen to a story being read aloud by Randy Kamp at 11:30 AM, Marc Dalton at 12 PM, and Ernie Daykin at 1 PM as part of the Maple Ridge Library’s celebration of Earth Day.
