The Kenora Public Library is the grateful recipient of a $2000 grant from the Laidlaw Foundation, located in Toronto, Ontario. This donation was in support of the local “Tell Me A Story” intergenerational storytelling program held at Pinecrest Home for the Aged. Youth and elder learning is a large part of the Laidlaw Foundation’s mission – to promote positive youth development through inclusive youth engagement in the arts, environment and in community.

The program has been running since 2016 and has received plenty of positive feedback. Youth come to participate in a story time and do crafts together.

This generous donation will help expand the program.
