VALERIE MCKAY TEACHES CHILDREN HOW TO WRITE THEIR OWN BOOKS AT THE MILTON-UNION PUBLIC LIBRARY
Retired Milton-Union School Librarian Valerie McKay demonstrated to local youngsters how to write their very own book encompassing the use of characters, creating action within their story and picking the story setting. Having written and illustrated their stories, the children got to bind their books and take them home.
