Saint John Free Public Library Support

We were glad to have the Saint John Free Public Library on board, as a funder and a friend, for our 9th year of Quality Storytents.  The library was a founding partner of the Saint John Family Literacy Advisory Committee, and has been a constant supporter and friend in almost all of our work with families in Crescent Valley.

Next year will be our 10th year of storytents.  Not surprisingly, the library is helping us mark and celebrate the decade with a number of events.  During this, Canada Library Month, we want to take a moment to thank the library for its support of our work, and, through us, its support of the families we serve.
