Book Bungalows – A Community Project

Book Bungalows

32 Book Bungalows have been adopted and distributed to good homes. Individuals and community groups have taken on the care of these wonderful additions to our community.  The Bungalows will increase access to books, promote literacy in the community and promote the community working together.  “Take a Book and/or Leave a Book!”

The Town of High River is helping to prepare a map that shows the locations of the Book Bungalows.  The map will be available online by September 8th  Below is a list of locations.  Not all Bungalows are installed.

Highwood HighSchool Grade 10 Construction class constructed the Bungalows as a school project.  We are excited to partner with the young people at that school.   High River Home Hardware, High River Rotary, and the High River Vitality Fund were generous donors to this project. We have had help from many volunteers. Delbert Moncrieff donated his time and truck to transport the bungalows to the Culture Centre.  The High River Firemen and Fred Stegmeier came out and helped move them into the Culture Centre.  The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Committee painted two of the Bungalows.
