The Love of Reading Foundation has adopted St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Catholic School in Innisfail until Oct. 6.
The program, through Indigo, Chapters and Coles, helps raise money for elementary school libraries.
Money raised at the stores in Red Deer will be used to buy new books at the school’s learning commons.
“It is hard to come up with the words to explain what a true blessing this program is to our students,” said JoAnne Kevill St. Marguerite librarian.
“We have lists of book requests that now we can fulfill. The students are approaching us daily with new book titles that they hope we will be able to get for their use. Because of this program, we will be able to enhance our non-fiction section where the kids love to share their knowledge of the world around them with their peers.”
People can donate to the Love of Reading Program at stores in Red Deer or online at www.indigo.ca. People can also fill the learning commons by purchasing a book listed on their registry and Indigo will donate a copy to our school.
