What is the Indigo Reading Foundation?
The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation has been drawing attention to the severe underfunding of school libraries which has led to a literacy crisis in Canada. The schools the Foundation supports have books that are held together by tape and staples or are, on average, more than 15 years old. As the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation celebrates its 10th anniversary, it is an excellent time to remind Canadians that they can help put books in the hands of kids.
How you can help Vote?
From now until February 28, the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation is encouraging Canadians to go online to LOR10.ca to vote for their favourite book(s) that inspired them to read as kids. These books will be included in the Top 10 Books every Canadian elementary school library should have. The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation will donate a set of the top 10 books to local schools across the country to foster passion for reading! By voting, Canadians are choosing the top 10 books that will go to over 200 schools!
