Pitt Meadows Family Literacy Day

  • February 1st, 1 – 3:30 PM
  • Pitt Meadows Public Library

Stories have connected people and ideas for centuries.

As Ursula Le Guin said “There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories.”

Stories are from the human mind.  They come through books, told stories, puppets, plays, movies, television, and computers.  They are told, sung, and chanted.  They are the shortest distance between truth and the human being.

On February 1st between 1 – 3:30 visit the Pitt Meadows Public Library to celebrate Family Literacy Day.  

This fun-filled family event will explore stories through the decades – particularly the past century – with displays, activities, and puppet shows.    Enter to win a prize basket, test your body with games and activities from past decades, or enjoy a Tim Horton’s coffee, hot chocolate, and tim bits.

Storyteller and puppeteer, Elspeth Bowers is hosting puppet shows at 1:15 PM and 2:15 PM that celebrate the decades with stories, songs, and puppets for all ages.   Fun is sure to be had by all!
