Book Donation for Literacy Hampers

Thanks to the Chilliwack Learning Society for the generous book donation for our Literacy Hampers.
For now, these and many other books are sitting in boxes at the Burnaby Neighbourhood House, waiting to be distributed safely as soon as the situation gets better! Stay healthy – keep on reading.

Literacy Hampers at the Food Hub

Literacy Now Burnaby handed out 100s of books at the Burnaby Neighbourhood House south food hub today.

With the help of our busy volunteers, people received literacy hampers with age-appropriate books, colours, activity sheets, The West Coast Reader, and info in various languages on community resources like the Neighbourhood Small GrantsBurnaby Public LibraryNewToBC, etc.

This project was made possible through the Raise a Reader campaign and donations from community members, with materials from First Book Canada.

Thanks to everyone at the BNH food hub, we hope to continue this project to put a book in every child’s hand!

Are you a parent or caregiver raising a multilingual child?

There are so many resources at Burnaby Public Library that you can use to support your child’s first language and to help them learn about other cultures. In this workshop, we’ll show you how to find these resources and we’ll also share tips and practical information for raising multilingual children.

This workshop is presented by Andrea Lukic, Teen Services Librarian and will take place online using Zoom. To join, you’ll need a device with internet connection, audio, and a microphone.
