A cow is coming to the Ponoka Jubilee Library but not the one that goes “moo.”
The cow is actually the Classroom on Wheels (COW) bus, which is painted similar to a cow and is intended to drive kids’ interest in reading, says librarian David Tremblay. “It’s a time for kids to come explore the bus.”
The COW is a fun, interactive experience for kids and their parents and travels around the province to promote reading and local libraries.
“It’s just a neat little way to get kids into the library,” he added.
The stop in Ponoka will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 30 and Tremblay says another group is presenting some books to the library at 1:30 p.m.
A Legacy Library will be presented by the Centre for Family Literacy, which donates children’s books for ages one to six.
“They donate books to the library, basically to promote literacy,” explained Tremblay.
