Rotary's guest speaker on Feb. 04, 2008 was Cheryl Brown, Community Literacy Coordinator – Quality Learning New Brunswick. Cheryl gave a very informative presentation on the community-based literacy program – “The Reading Tent”. Children of all ages take advantage of mobile libraries – “moved about the community on a wagon” – during the summer months. Moms and Dads also join in as volunteers and readers alike. The Rotary Club of Saint John is partnering with Cheryl’s organization for its Literacy Project.*
We'd like to thank the Rotarians for their interest in community literacy, and promise to keep them updated about our work.
