Sunnyside grade 5 and 6 students participating in our weekly Elementary Tutoring Program took a break from routine and ventured down to the Haskell Free Library this week. The students, Phelps volunteers, and our program coordinator were graciously welcomed by the Librarian and the new Youth Programs Coordinator. After a brief tour of the historic library, which is famous for being in both the USA and Canada, students had the opportunity to select books to take out to enjoy during Phelps sessions. The Haskell team was eager to learn more about the reading interests of our students to inform their youth book collection. To end the visit, Connie, the Haskell Youth Coordinator, gathered the kids together to share a fun and engaging story about a very curious fly.
The Stanstead area has so many beautiful and historical places to visit, like the Haskell Free Library, and Phelps is always grateful to partner with these organizations and show our youth all that our wonderful corner of the Eastern Townships has to offer.
