We need your support! On October 8th Fontana Regional Library will be partnering with Bogart’s Restaurant in Sylva, who will donate 10% of each meal purchased to help fund the Reading Rover Bookmobile. Come feed your family while you feed Rover!
Tuesday, October 8 from 4pm-9pm
35 East Main Street
Sylva, North Carolina 28779
Come see our bookmobile with its wonderful resources, helping your children to read and enjoy learning. The story teller reads stories to preschoolers and children at area child care centers and leads them in learning songs/rhymes while the Rover driver assists teachers in selecting library materials for their classrooms. At some centers, the children select their own library books from the Rover. Books, puzzles, music, puppets, and storytelling kits from the Rover help teachers of young children make learning fun!
Each year it becomes more difficult to keep Rover on the road. Rising costs of diesel fuel and vehicle maintenance, as well as the increase in the cost of library books and educational materials, cannot be met by state, local and grant funding alone.
Please help “feed” Rover. Use the Reading Rover Pledge Form (pdf) to make your contribution. Read more about the Reading Rover bookmobile (a cooperative project with Smart Start and Region A Partnership for Children) on our website: http://fontanalib.org/readingRover.htm
