Dufferin Clark Library Unveils Revitalized Study and Computer Areas

Bookmark and Share

Dufferin Clark Library recently revitalized its study and computer areas thanks to a generous donation of new tables made by the two local plants of Wholesome Harvest Baking Ltd., Rivermede and Viceroy, as part of their Good Neighbor Project which aims to generate a positive change in the surrounding community. Wholesome Harvest Baking Ltd. is a division of Grupo Bimbo, a Mexican multinational bakery product manufacturing company.

On Dec. 10, the library unveiled the new areas to more than 100 students from the Charlton and Glen Shields Public Schools followed by an interactive musical named ROCKgarden Party. The musical was a hit with the children and taught them a great lesson about the importance of protecting the environment.
