Oh Hudson....and a pretty cool find!

East Ridge Community School September 21, 2018

We checked in with Coles Heritage Place and found Hudson being a tad mischeivous, or as we would prefer to say "playful".  It looks like he is having a great time over at Coles and fitting in quite well with the amazing sales associates.  We have warned him though that he must behave or he might find himself in trouble with store manager, Lisa!  However, I think Lisa has a pretty soft spot for Hudson after spending a week together!

While Hudson has been away educating the community of Owen Sound and surrounding area of the desperate need for new books at East Ridge Community School, we have been working away in our school library.  Although the library in our new school officially opened last November, we are still sorting through boxes.  Combining the two school libraries has not been an easy task and because we a dedicated team of staff and volunteers we are taking the time to unpack and set things up properly right from the start!

While sorting through a box of dusty, tattered books we happened to flip through some of the pages and came across a pretty cool find!  The book was 'Lost and Found' by Canadian author Jean Little and enclosed was a beautiful inscription and autograph. 

The inscription reads, "Reading is a good bad habit.  Keep reading a Little!" ~ Jean Little.  

This has quickly become our Literacy Committee's new favourite quote!

If you're up at the mall this weekend stop by Coles and say hi to Hudson.  Maybe pick up a book of your own and make reading your own "good bad habit"!
