SLA News Flash - January 18, 2018
SLA had a table in the trade show and received lots of interest and questions from the general public. The highlight of the day was a performance by Mother Teresa Middle School's "Buffalo Boys" Indigenous dance and drumming group. We are now looking at ways to create a template of information and activities that were offered so that other public libraries across the province who wanted to do something similar could do so "out of the box".
Thanks again to all the staff at RPL who were involved in creating such a successful event
