Literacy Day at Norwood Centre

The Norwood Child & Family Resource Centre recently joined the Community Bookshelf project in late 2011 and they have invited FLIF members to attend their celebration of Family Literacy Day on Friday January 27th 2012 from 11:00 - 3:00

This is a drop-in event throughout the day, if there are several FLIF members who would be interested in stopping by and seeing how the Community Bookshelf donations have helped one of our community members as well as seeing the work that Norwood does in this community send an email to flifblog (at) I'm sure we can organized a ride to stop by and participate in this event.

APIRG Open House this week!

APIRG (Alberta Public Interest Research Group) is having an open house this Wednesday January 18th from 11:30 to 2:30 at their office in the North end of HUB. 

APIRG is an incredible resource based at the University of Alberta for student and community-based research, education, and social activism. They provide administrative, informational, and technological resources to help student working groups to transform social concern into effective action and they are a major supporter of FLIF.

I would strongly recommend you stop by (it is a come-and-go event) and say hi to the APIRG staff and volunteers.

This is a fantastic resource for anyone on campus interested in community engagement and social justice. They have a great library in the office of alternative materials that is definitely worth checking out.
