Celebrating literacy

Puppet show and book bin project at SEAPARC in Sooke

To celebrate the week of National Family Literacy Day, the Sooke Region Literacy Project is partnering with the Sooke Branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library and SEAPARC to host a puppet show by Tim Gosley, former puppeteer on Fraggle Rock and Sesame Park and winner of a Gemini Award in 2003 for best preschool puppet performance. There will be refreshments, button making and information about family literacy. The event is free and starts at 4:00 on Friday January 30 in the multipurpose room at SEAPARC. 65 kids plus parents have registered through the library for this event.

The Sooke Girl Guides¬†are thrilled to be holding a two month long book drive to collect books for the Sooke Book Bin program. They are mostly in need of children’s books. A new book bin was unveiled this week at SEAPARC specifically for children’s books. he Book Bin program allows the public to pick out quality books from bins placed in public places throughout Sooke. Approximately 200 books go out into the community every week. The program is tremendously successful!
