Literacy Across Mackenzie: A Health Partnership
The Mackenzie Library will further invigorate its partnership with the local public health unit. The health unit currently lends book bags filled with ten picture books and board books appropriate for infants and children up to age one. As incentive for the program, parents receive free, one new book every time they return a book bag. This program complements the library’s mission for literacy in the community and is another point of contact for parents to learn about supporting literacy in their children. This innovative outreach program provides access to the library’s resources through unique non-traditional ways.
