As the Children’s programmer for the past eight years at Gravenhurst Public Library, Carla has a passion for promoting Family Literacy. Through her visits to local classrooms and programs out in the community she has become known as “˜Miss Carla’! and her home is the busiest on the street Halloween night, as many families are aware that rather than candy, books are given out to trick-or-treaters. Twelve years ago she began the ChIRP (Children of Inmates Reading program) in two local Federal Correctional Facilities. Recently the program has been expanded to 4 other sites across Canada.
