A Postcard??

It all started because I needed a postcard, and Warburg didn’t have one


 I had received a traveling journal from my grandson Derek Adams who lives in Gilbert, Arizona. This was a project his school decided to do this year. He is a grade two student there.
 Of course like any grandmother, I wanted to help him out and send it onto others in Canada before having it back to Arizona by April 2012. My dilemma was that Warburg did not have a postcard and this was a crucial part of the project as we had to send one to his school from each place it had been so they could track where it had traveled to. I was a little discouraged, that is, until I talked to the girls at the library. Gail O’Neil, the librarian, mentioned it to her work experience student Brandi Lafreniere, a Grade 10 student at Warburg School. This brilliant young student took on the project to make me up a postcard to send to my grandson’s school. Who would have thought it would go any further, but as fate would have it,Gail took the idea to the library board meeting and before long the library had adopted the plan to make not only one postcard but make others for the Village of Warburg  so that anyone desiring a postcard  would be able to purchase one.
 The postcard Brandi produced was beautiful and anyone I have showed it to is a little envious as their postcards are lacking. Great job Brandi!
   The staff, Gail, Julie, Nikki and Brandi has been a great help with computer questions and problems I’ve incurred of late. They have six computers for the public to use and you can get printing, photocopying, laminating and, of course, books.
  Let’s not forget you can now get a postcard for The Village of Warburg thanks to the staff at the Warburg Library.
