It’s a festive time of the year, as we enter the Christmas period . The staff of the Dundee Public Library in conjunction with Friends of The Library Dundee Inc offers the children within the community the chance of having enjoyable Christmas. Over the period of three days , this past week , the library was the venue for a gathering of the children from the Dundee Elementary School as well as from the daycare facilities within out local community , among them Stay & Play.
There the children in the accompaniment of their teachers of guardians were present for a story-time with there also being a visit from Santa and Mrs Claus. Those children in attendance were provided with a gift-pack from Santa.
The diligent efforts of Library Director Julie Feagle, her staff and those from Friends of The Library, headed by its President Rukhsana Harper , alongside fellow board members Mary Ann Podbielski and Alan Parkins should not go unnoticed , as this event has now become an annual institution on the calendars of both parties.
It should also be noted Friends of The Library through its outreach program also conducted a visit to Migrant School located in the town of Dundee. This visit was a tremendous success as the children welcomed Santa & Mrs Claus with smiles and a great deal of joy. Needless to say, having been showered with their presents , it made the morning for them ,all the more memorable.
The joint efforts of the Dundee Public Library and Friends of The Library with regard to their collective outreach program with the Migrant Head Start School continues to be a tremendous success .
A special word of thanks to the residents of Dell Lake Village and the assistance provided in our fundraising efforts and other activities this season ! Thank you
