Bright Red Bookshelf opens in the Bella Coola Valley

A downtown burger BBQ kicked off the opening of the Bright Red Book Shelf on July 25. Bright Red Book Shelves will be found at the Bella Coola Co-op, Hagensborg Mercantile, the Hagensborg Post Office, Healthy Beginnings, the Nuxalk Band Office and the New Leaf Learning Centre.

The goal is to increase book ownership, which will also make children better readers at an early age. Reading with children is fun and a great activity anytime of the day, especially in the summer.

The Bright Red Book Shelves are places to re-cycle your “gently used” books and take a used one home designed in mind for ages 0-6 years – even pre-0! If you really like a book, you may keep it or you can return it to any Bright Red Book Shelf and choose another one. Books you donate will be labelled and sorted. (Volunteers are welcome to join us for this task!) No children’s book should ever be lonely, so send one to a new home!
