The North Okanagan Early Years Fair is Saturday at Vernon's library

Families often do not know where to start when looking for activities, resources, or help.

If you are new to the area or have been here for generations, the North Okanagan Early Years Fair will be the first step to seeing what, and how, to access programs and activities in your community.

All families of young children are invited to take part in the fair by stopping by Vernon’s Okanagan Regional Library at 10:15 a.m. Saturday to experience storytelling and entertainment, and explore the information fair.

“We’re really excited to be a part of the third annual Early Years Fair at the library,” said Jesie Harms, with the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club, just one of the many local groups that will be at the fair.

“There’s always a great turnout.”

Booths from community organizations will have resources, games and giveaways for parents and children and will give community members the opportunity to see what is available for them locally.

“The Early Years community will be represented with booths ranging from non-profits, to the Vernon School District, Interior Health to Family Resource centre and more,” said Tracy Williamson, North Okanagan Early Years Council c-oordinator.
