Share a Book

Tags : 

There are three simple ways to share books throughout the year!

1. Give a Book to a Friend or Relative.
 Celebrate the love of reading by giving a child a new, used or borrowed book.

2. Leave a Book in a Waiting Room or Lobby.
Choose a waiting room where kids are stuck waiting and there are few to no good books available. Purchase a good book, and deposit your book covertly or overtly in your waiting room of choice. The goal here is to spread the love of reading to kids, so choose a fun book.

3. Donate a Book.
Wrap up a box of children’s books that your kids have outgrown and get them in the hands of children who could really use a book or two. Donate your books to your local second hand store, library, children’s hospital, or shelter.”/]


New and Used Books Wanted

We are currently accepted new and used books in English and French, for children or adults, to give away to the public. Books can be dropped at CDC-Vimont, 2100 blvd des Laurentides during school hours Monday to Friday, excluding holidays.

No school text books or old computer programming books please!


A Generous Gift of Books

Tags : 

At my high school, as a final evaluation we have to create a unique, personal project. Being a big bookworm, I chose to do it on literacy and how important it is. I noticed how many books I had that were already read and just uselessly gathering dust and thought about how I could find a way to give them a second life while promoting literacy. With a little research, I found out about this great non-profit organization called The Learning Exchange that had the exact same goal of promoting literacy and accepted book donations! I then talked to my school board about it and they let me host a used book drive. For a few days I hung signs and passed messages about my project to my classmates, teachers, friends and family. I was able to collect over 550 books for The Learning Exchange. It made me so happy to see how generous people ended up being and that I could, in fact, make such a precious donation and maybe help some of the TLE students find the passion in reading that I have!”/] -Taylor Gadoury

Three simple ways to celebrate International Book Giving Day, February 14th, 2017!

1. Give a Book to a Friend or Relative.
 Celebrate International Book Giving Day by giving a child a new, used or borrowed book.
2. Leave a Book in a Waiting Room or Lobby.
Choose a waiting room where kids are stuck waiting and there are few to no good books available. Purchase a good book, and deposit your book covertly or overtly in your waiting room of choice. The goal here is to spread the love of reading to kids, so choose a fun book, nothing controversial.
3. Donate a Book.
Wrap up a box of children’s books that your kids have outgrown and get them in the hands of children who could really use a book or two. Donate your books to your local second hand store, library, children’s hospital, or shelter. Alternatively, donate your books to an organization working internationally to get books in the hands of kids, such as Books for Africa, or support UK children’s hospital charity Readathon. Publisher Book Island will donate one book to their hospital programme for each book sold via their website (14 – 28 February).
