“Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much” – Helen Keller

Another incredible story time is in the books! This past Sunday, Amherstburg mayor Aldo DiCarlo shared a great selection of community-centred stories with our attentive crowd of listeners. The kids were so delighted when Mayor DiCarlo showed off some mayoral artifacts like his ribbon-cutting scissors and his mayoral chains. We know that his reading inspired these future upstanding citizens.

Next on our celebrity story time roster is Assistant Deputy Fire Chief Dan Monk from the Amherstburg Fire Department. Sunday, July 10th at 1pm, Deputy Dan will read books on fire safety, and he will be bringing along a big fire engine! We are expecting a great turnout for this story time, so make sure to reserve your seat by emailing or calling (226)-906-8311. We hope to see you there!

Mark your calendars for Sunday, July 31st! We will be having a special celebrity reader in honour of Emancipation Day 2022. More information to come. 

Keep on reading!
