W.E. Kinvig Elementary school is going shopping, thanks to a cheque for $95,000 from the indigo Love of Reading Foundation.
The teachers and students of the Surrey school were awarded the grant through their efforts to demonstrate a need for books adn other literary materials, and their passionate commitment to learning through a love of reading.
The school is going to use the money to transform its library and stock it with new books in a shopping spree at Chapters in Surrey.
The Love of Reading Foundation was established in 2004 to ensure all elementary school children have easy access to books and other learning materials. Celebrating the donation of more than $1,000,000 books nationwide since inception, the foundation has made a total contribution of $13.5 million, including the $1.5 million given to 20 schools across Canada this year.
