NEW: Stuffed Animal Rescue (of Fernie) aka  S.A.R.F READERS

Do you have a child who is reluctant to read, who would love to snuggle up to a giant stuffy, with their own selection of books and read aloud? Introducing Fernie’s Library SARF Readers. We have rescued four soft and snuggly animals who love to be read to! Children will be asked to take these animals out for reading breaks (under the supervision of an adult) in order to get some one on one time to practice reading in front of a soft and friendly reading companion.  SARF animals are waiting to be read to: come to the library to read to one today!
