Books Galore

A $35,000 grant will mean a lot of books for the elementary students at Gold River-Western Shore.  The school is the winner of an Indigo Love of Reading Foundation Grant.  Funding for the Foundation comes 2/3 from the Canadian book chain Indigo and the rest comes from their customers.  The money will be paid out over three years.  You can go to the Foundation's website and hear Heather Reisman giving Librarian Cindy Lamson the good news.   The money will be broken down into three annual instalments of more than 11-thousand 600 dollars.  They will use it to buy books and hold events to promote literacy among the students at Gold River/Western Shore.
