Adventures at the library lead children overseas

The children were ready for another trip on the Airbus 4169 at the Springdale Public Library during the TD Summer Reading Program flying out of Miss Judy's International Airport. They were all excited to find out where they were going. The destination this week was Scotland! The Pilot was introduced and the weekly airplane song was sung and they made their way to security with their passports in hand. The flight wasn't long going to Scotland but when the sound of the bagpipes were heard, we knew we had arrived safely.

Elaine Huxter was there to greet us all welcomed us with a Scottish accent. Another adventure and learning experience began for everyone.

Librarian Judy told the children that Scotland is known for the Scottish terrier dog breed, the Shortbread cookie, golf, and sheep farming. Librarian Judy read a story before Alyssa Wells taught the children a few Scottish dance steps. She then dance a solo for which was very impressive to the children. Elaine Huxter also brought along her Kilt, shoes, socks, sporran (purse), some heather (flower from Scotland) and her very own bagpipes. She played a Scottish March for the children. Scottish shortbread cookies and juice was served as snack.

There was another special guest who drop by to see all the children and that was Francis and John Buchanan along with their Scottish terrier, Heather. John, who was born and lived in Scotland, just received his Canadian Citizenship last month. Heather enjoyed being around the children and they enjoyed being around her. The guests that were in Scotland were there to answer any question that the children had for them. It was time to fly back to Newfoundland from Scotland. It was sad to leave because everyone was having such a great trip.

As we entered security their parents were there to greet them all. Keep reading to find out where the AIRBUS4169 will be going next week
