Mary-Ann Podbielski, a volunteer with the Dundee Library coordinates , and conducts these events, with the most popular, being our Kids’ Story-time , which takes place , weekly, on Wednesday, from 9.00 AM until 10.00 AM.
Mary-Ann is usually be assisted by either Library Superintendent Julie Feagle or Rukhsana Harper when these events take place. If the children are unable to attend, as has often been the case, we will make every effort to visit them , as we often do with a number of activities, which takes in many of the children at the local migrant school, located in the town of Dundee. Nothing gives these children greater pleasure than to be part of an activity, where their young minds are being infused with knowledge, while at the same time,having a great deal of fun.
