Here are just a few ways your donation dollars make an impact:
- Last year, our community partners received over 66,000 books; this year, we’re on track to surpass that number. A monthly gift of $10 or a one-time gift of $100 or more will insure our Books across the City program connects with even more partners in high-needs neighbourhoods.
- Over 150 books are given away every day at our welcoming storefront. This means that thousands of books are regularly sorted, packed and displayed by our wonderful team of volunteers. Become a monthly donor and help keep our bookshelves full for just $25 a month.
- Families love our dictionary program which provides free and new children’s dictionaries to those new to the community and to Canada. A monthly donation of $30 or more will secure the continuation of this highly popular program.
- The Children’s Book Bank hosted 541 school trips in 2018. A one-time donation of $50 or more will pay for the cost of one of these fun visits when children have the chance to hear stories and ‘shop’ for their favourite books – for free.
