Do your kids love fire trucks? Of course, don’t we all?! At the Central Library’s Engine 23 interactive installation, kids can put on their fire hats, pull on their coats, and act out their favourite fire truck daydreams and fantasies.

Engine 23 at the Library is approaching its first anniversary and has been extremely popular with literally thousands of children since it made its debut last Spring. To celebrate, the Read with Engine 23, supported by Pembina, has announced a two-year partnership with the Calgary Public Library to create a children’s literacy program that brings together Library experts and real-life firefighters from the Calgary Fire Department to read to children and share fire safety lessons. This free family program is being held at Central Library on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 11:00 am. Of course, this includes lots of fun and interactive play with Engine 23 as the stage! The Read with Engine 23 program will get children talking, singing, reading, writing, and acting out stories as well as introduce them to some real-life heroes of our community.

Visit Engine 23 anytime the Central Library is open or drop in for a special Engine 23 Storytime.
