Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Perth and District is providing $3,000 to support delivery of literacy programs for children in the summer of 2023. Early literacy provides a strong foundation for success in school and beyond, and we are pleased to support the creative programming offered by our in local libraries.

Amanda Robinson, CEO/Librarian at the Lanark Highlands Public Library said she “would like to emphasize that we are so grateful for the support you have shown us over the past several years despite the challenges you have faced in your fundraising endeavors.” She joined the other librarians and children’s programmers for the help we provide to young readers.
