On the occasion of Family Literacy Day and as part of EMSB Literacy week, Roslyn Elementary School recently launched its new Born to Read initiative. Comedien/television personality/magician David Acer, a one-time Roslyn student, wase among the special guests on hand at a formal presentation. Westmount Mayor Karin Marks, herself a Roslyn grad, also attended. In 1990 the New Carlisle literacy exchange in the Gaspé developed the first. At the presentation in the school gym, Roslyn families with new babies were presented with a gift of books for their newborns in a colourful Born to Read bag.
