A Good Book Drive

by Robyn P. Yager

Hello Readers!

Have you heard of A Good Book Drive yet? No?? Well, I’ll tell you.

For the month of November – that’s November 1st to 30th, select retailers around the  city will be collecting new copies of favourite kid’s books for the Vancouver literacy program, The Writer’s Exchange.

I think this is such an excellent way to pass down memories of reading and also pass down stories that have impacted us at such a young age.

We haven’t decided on a book yet, but I would encourage you to participate in this Book Drive as well. I don’t think there’s a better way to teach a child something than through a children’s book. I’m all for it.

Book Book Box Locations include:

  • Nelson the Seagull – 315 Carrall Street
  • Collage Collage – 621 Kingsway
  • Dilly Dally – 1161 Commercial Drive
  • Union Wood Company – 503 Railway Street
  • ArtStarts – 808 Richards Street
  • Walrus – 3408 Cambie
