Tourism and Culture Minister Robert Henderson gets a first hand look at Library EnRoute with Grace Dawson and Lori MacAdam from the Public Library Service.
The Public Library Service (PLS) plans to reach out to Islanders and promote its services with a new van called Library EnRoute.
Tourism and Culture Minister Robert Henderson says the van will attend events and busy locations all over the Island.
“Library EnRoute is a great tool that allows Islanders to learn about all of the resources, programs and services available through the provincial Public Library Service, and a creative way for the PLS to promote libraries all over the Island,” said Henderson.
“PLS staff work very hard to instill a life-long love of reading and books, and to encourage improved literacy at all age levels. By using Library EnRoute to showcase our services we are able to connect with Islanders at various locations across the province and give them an opportunity to explore everything our libraries have to offer.”
Library EnRoute is equipped with a technology bar that includes wifi, lap top computers, e-readers and tablets. People can use the devices to explore PLS resources and services. They can also sign up for a free library card, or speak with a PLS representative who can provide information and answer questions.
