Who doesn’t love a bedtime story? This tradition is a large part of many of our fondest memories and Parkland at the Lakes wanted to make sure visitor restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t get in the way. PAL residents and staff teamed up to create a virtual library of their favourite children’s books for residents to read to their grandchildren. PAL team members capture these stories ensuring that no one goes to bed without a favourite tale read by one of our residents.

Our digital story library currently includes The Gruffalo read by resident Wilma Stewart White, Sleeping Dragons All Around read by Jill McKee and I Went To The Zoo read by Art White. You can find these stories on our YouTube playlist at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLe1C0dapX9OmBO0wjGEck3kVjZ67ly1gQ

Help us grow our Library! We are looking forward to adding more stories soon. Do you have a story that you would like to share? Email your video submissions to connections@shannex.com to be added to story library!
