The staff and management of the Charles Wesley Turnbull Regional Public Library cordially invites all current, new and prospective members of the Friends of St. Thomas Public Libraries (FOSTPL) to a Friends Appreciation Event April 13, 2015 between the hours of 5:30 PM and 7:30 PM to kick-off the territory’s National Library Week (April 12-18, 2015) at Turnbull Regional Library in Tutu (up the hill from Plaza Extra).
The Day Care Literacy Project was started in 2004 with monies donated by Penny and Henry Fuerzeig, who are committed to the concept that most of what children learn is learned before they are four years old. They are supporting programs that make that period of a child's development as rich and stimulating as possible. Volunteers take packets of books to a day care center and read at least two books to the children, emphasizing child participation, verbalization and dramatic reading. The first goal, of course, is to engage the children and make books interesting and exciting. The secondary goal is to model for the teachers so they too can involve the children with books.
In April 2014, Rotary Club of St. Thomas East presented founder Carol Lotz-Felix with a $250.00 donation to replenish lost books for the Day Care literacy program.
