Leaderships students at EMCS will fill up the libraries

  • Jun. 12, 2013 6:00 a.m.

Do you have outgrown children’s books at home, waiting to go to a good home?

You can help support literacy in our community by donating those books (as long as they’re new, gently used, and appropriate for elementary school kids) to our EMCS Leadership Book Drive!

Drop boxes will be at Village Food Markets and the Reading Room until June 14, 2013. We will sort the books and then we’ll take them to our local school libraries – Sooke elementary, École Poirier, Saseenos lementary, and John Muir elementary. Wouldn’t the kids love to come back to school to a new, fuller library? Help us fill these empty boxes!

If you have any questions, or too many books for the drop box, call 250-642-7555 and ask for Maryna. Thanks in advance for your support!
