Who was Wyatt Colnett?
Wyatt Colnett stood out among teens living in Calgary; Cochrane being his hometown, for his extraordinary passion for literature. Spending many hours devouring pages at local libraries as he immersed himself into their pages was something Wyatt delighted in doing and was even featured as one of their young ambassadors who encouraged both peers and adults with his enthusiasm and knowledge about reading! Whilst living in Calgary he spent many of his waking hours immersed in books from when he would come home; all this coupled with his unrivalled enthusiasm made reading all that more enjoyable by being involved with Cochrane Public Library where his love of reading went beyond personal pleasure: his involvement showed in spreading literature’s joy by participating actively participating literary events at CPL; this shows his dedication towards spreading reading across society both locally as well as community service projects undertaken with CPL being just another part of that commitment that extended past personal pleasure: inspiring both peers as adults alike with his knowledge through participation with CPL involvement also in Cochrane where his passion for reading never faded away!
