Adopt-a-Library 2008

The 2008 BC Book Prizes On Tour was our biggest tour to date, bringing “real live authors” to literally thousands of children and adults around the province.
Last year we established the Adopt-a-Library program to leave a lasting, tangible legacy of these author visits: a library of BC Book Prize finalist books donated to libraries in BC schools. These books are purchased directly from the publishers with funding from local community-minded businesses and individuals, whose support is acknowledged in commemorative book plates.

In its fledgling year, the Adopt-a-Library program confirmed six sponsors supporting eight schools; this year we confirmed 14 sponsors donating a combined total of $13,000worth of books to 26 schools. Thanks to all for helping to bring the best of BC writing and publishing to the next generation of readers and authors.
