Library Live and On Tour!

Library Live and On Tour aka LiLi

Abbotsford's Family Fun Day was in full swing this morning!  Many of the city's family resources were at the event as well as an array of children's games and crafts.  I also had the opportunity to experience the Fraser Valley Regional Library's "Library Live and On Tour" van and meet their very knowledgeable and energetic Tour Manager Dave Denault

LiLi Tour Manager Dave Denault

With the music bumpin' behind him, Dave informed me of a series of events and happenings organized by the Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL).  The Fraser Valley Library's new community library card allows individuals who have no form of ID or proof of address to check out books on limited basis.  He also offered to wave my fines because sometimes I forget to return the books on time ;o).  Dave's table was stacked with library swag and materials including the FVRL's summer programs and services magazine.  Check out all the reading clubs, entertainment and activities right here.

Before I left his booth, Dave generously handed me a few books to share with our Skookum readers!  How cool is that?  For those of you learning French, we have "On y va!"...

And "The No More Night Mares: A Dream of Freedom"...

I'm thrilled to have LiLi as part of our community.  LiLi is a literally and figuratively a vehicle designed to reach remote communities unable to access learning resources as well as a symbol that represents the mobility literacy affords individuals.  I look forward to seeing Dave and LiLi at future family events!
