Books-for-All (formerly Adopt-A-Book) Program for
all our precious children
Help spread the love of reading this Christmas ~ and for a lifetime ~ to children at risk.
In the true spirit of giving, and with the desire to reach out to our precious children, the people of Salmon Arm are making a difference again this Christmas.
Through this, and similar programs, thousands and thousands of dollars of Usborne books have been distributed to non-profit organizations and children’s centres throughout the Shuswap, including the S.A.F.E. house, Shuswap Family Resource Centre, Mount Ida School, various preschools/daycares, School District 83, Food/Toy Bank, Province Empty Stocking Fund and more...
A selection of Usborne books has been chosen for the children, and so now it's up to individuals and businesses to “Adopt-a-Book” (or several). For every dollar collected about $1.40 goes towards this worthy project. More information can be found at www.BookLady.ca/ForTheKids
Thank you to all who give generously to the various literacy/fundraising campaigns sponsored by the BookLady... promoting the gift of reading in our homes, in our communities and around the world!
Today a reader--tomorrow a leader.
Books were my pass to personal freedom. I learned to read at age three,
and soon discovered there was a whole world to conquer that went beyond
our farm in Mississippi.
The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles,
it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and
experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.
