The Friends of Iqaluit Centennial Library at the Rotary Fall Fun Fair 2012

Rotary Fall Fair – Saturday, October 5th

For the 3rd year the Friends of the Iqaluit Centennial Library held a successful outreach program at the Rotary Fall Fair. Each October hundreds of Iqaluit families enjoy an afternoon of carnival games, canteen and cotton candy. The “Friends” host a free booth to promote library programs and services to our community. This year we were able to distribute over 460 new children’s books. Children were able to choose between Inuktitut, English and French books. There were library loot bags, tattoos and children played a free game to win a finger puppet. We collected e-mail addresses for our mailing list and people could even sign up for a library card. This was excellent opportunity to reach families who are not regular library users. We are already planning our booth for next year!
