Yay for us!
Our Quality Storytents program was recognized this year with a Dr. Marilyn Trenholme Counsell Early Childhood Literacy Award.
(Yes, that's me up there... needing a haircut, ill-dressed and intensely uncomfortable. Our org's VP and fellow wagon-wrangler Kate Wright was also on hand.)
The Dr. Marilyn Trenholme Counsell Early Childhood Literacy awards recognize women and men throughout the province who make an outstanding contribution to the lives of young children through literacy. This is a province-wide award administered by our two literacy coalitions, continuing a tradition begun by the Honourable Marilyn Trenholme Counsell when she served as Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick.
There's a bit more about the award on the QLNB News site here.
This is the second time our work has been recognized in this way: in 2006 the Saint John Free Public Library won in the "Library Category" for our Bookwagon program. (Which looks like this...)
Thanks everybody! (You know who you are.)
