Day 17: New Library for the Mt Kuring Gai Before and After School Care
14 January 2013
We love books, and know how much happiness they bring. So when the Mt Kuring Gai Before and After School Care told us about their plans for a new library, we put our hands up to get involved.
They’re a not for profit community centre run by a Volunteer Management Committee on behalf of the Mt Kuring Gai Parents and Citizens Association to support the Mt Kuring Gai Primary School. The centre provides out of school hours care for up to 25 school children each morning and afternoon.
Their Happy Communities Grant will be used to set up a library for Kindergarten to year 6– that’s new shelving, new library bags, and of course a whole new collection of books! Not only great for story time, the new library will also encourage independent reading and learning. Now that’s a happy ending!
