The Fort Saskatchewan Library is using some
donated money to promote childhood literacy.
Heartland Ford donated $15,000 to the library to help enhance the children's area.
"We are so grateful to Heartland Ford for their generosity and commitment to early literacy and learning in the community," said library director Michele Feser.
A big portion of the donation will go towards a SMART Table, a child's height round corner table with educational games and built in wi-fi; it's expected to arrive in January of 2018.
Along with the smart table, there will be a new Grab and Go service, set to be launched in September. This new program will allow busy families to grab a bag of books with quaility, age appropriate content for three different age groups; 0 to two, two to three (toddlers) and three to five (preschoolers).
