Friends of the Oro Valley Public Library sponsor Literacy Corner at the new Children’s Museum Oro Valley
Tucson, AZ (February 6, 2015) – The Children’s Museum Oro Valley is thrilled to announce that it has received a $31,250 donation from the Friends of the Oro Valley Public Library. The funds will support the creation of the Friends of the Oro Valley Public Library Literacy Corner at the new Children’s Museum Oro Valley.
The new Literacy Corner will bring stories alive as families enjoy literacy-based programming or read under our Alphabet Tree. Children will get lost in literacy as they climb into one of our Book Nooks with their favorite book. The exhibit will also feature a canopy of books that will soar out from the Alphabet Tree with pages turning into whimsical origami creatures.
“The Friends are happy to contribute to the new Children’s Museum in Oro Valley. It will be an asset to the town and its families. Anything that promotes literacy and learning is in the Friends realm of interest,” said Jane Peterson, Vice-President of the Friends of the Oro Valley Public Library.
The check presentation will be held on Thursday, February 12 at 3:00 pm at the Oro Valley Public Library. Representatives of the Children’s Museum Oro Valley and the Friends of the Oro Valley Library will be present.
Regular admission at CMOV is $6, ages 1-99; free for children under 12 months. The Children’s Museum Oro Valley will be located at 11015 N. Oracle Rd in Oro Valley. For more information, please call (520) 792-9985.
Friends of the Oro Valley Public Library came into being in 2001; the year ground was broken to build the Library. Since then the Friends have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to supplement the Library’s budget. The Friends have bought books, computers and furniture, started the Seed Library and paid for tutoring help, computer training and special programming. Visit them at orovalleyfriends.org
