On Fri­day, Septem­ber 28 Chi­nook Fi­nan­cial do­nated $15,000 to the Drumheller Pub­lic Li­brary in its ef­forts to serve stu­dents and to up­date the li­brary space at Green­tree Ele­men­tary School, which hasn’t had li­brary staff since 2012. “We see this as an im­por­tant step in in­vest­ing in the fu­ture of youth in our com­mu­ni­ties,” said Chi­nook Fi­nan­cial pres­i­dent Keith Richard. “The op­por­tu­nity that Chi­nook Fi­nan­cial’s Com­mu­nity Grant will give us to en­hance the school li­brary ser­vices at Green­tree will make a dif­fer­ence not only in in­creas­ing stu­dents’ lit­er­acy skills, but in help­ing them to dis­cover a life­long love of read­ing,” said as­so­ciate prin­ci­pal Shel­ley Friesen.
