Van Isle library joins campaign

Vancouver Island Regional Library urges the public to be a part of an important initiative that has the potential to affect every aspect of Canadian society.

The library is taking part in the National Reading Campaign and its What Did You Read Today? campaign.

The campaign, involving a coalition of librarians, educators, booksellers, publishers, readers and writers, is an initiative to bring the joy of reading to Canadians.

It’s a public awareness campaign created to help make reading a national priority through a pair of contests.

One is for the general public and the other for kids. Both contests run until Dec. 31 and are open to Canadian residents only.
