Literacy Hamper Distribution Week

  • Reading time:1 mins read
Distributing literacy hampers and books on Monday, Aug 16, at the Outreach Resource Centre at Southside Community Church.
Sorting the books earlier that day at the Burnaby Neighbourhood House Community Hub.

Thanks to very generous donations, we are entering a whole week of Literacy Hamper Distribution at local Burnaby food and resource hubs!

Literacy Now received over 1,000 children’s books at the Pop Up Book Distribution by First Book Canada. Thanks to the workers at the Richmond Raincoast Books, who helped with loading the truck!

Another pallet of 1,200 books by the Read On Canada! coalition from the Canadian Children’s Literacy Foundations arrived at our doorsteps at the Burnaby Neighbourhood House this morning. Our Literacy Now “food hub librarians” received them and already started distributing, today at the Outreach Resource Centre, and with great support from the Burnaby Public Library community librarians!
