Good day all:

Please find attached a press release and schedule concerning the
Adopt-A-Library Literacy Program's week of delivering over 80,000 books to
nine Nova Scotian regional public libraries.  Delivering the free reading
material for our young readers will be the founder of the program, RCMP
Constable John Kennedy.

Valued at over 700,00.00, this donation of free books represent one of the
largest donations of its kind in the history of Nova Scotia. 

To read the complete story of the Adopt A Library Literacy Program and how
it has been promoting crime reduction through children's literacy over the
past decade, please visit the program's site at http://www.fightingcrime.ca.


For more information please do not hesitate to contact me to assist in
arranging an interview with Constable John Kennedy as he makes his way
around the province in a truck full of books or please feel free to contact
our Chief Librarian, Eric Stackhouse (902-755-6031 or

Please pardon cross-postings.

Thanks again.
