1000x5 Program

All children deserve a chance to be read to. 1000x5 aims to help with that - by the community, for the community. Through this initiative, gently-used children’s picture books are collected from our community, and delivered to our collection depot. There, the books are screened for suitability, sorted, cleaned, and bagged by volunteers for distribution to young children (birth-5 years) and their families. Working with family-serving agencies within the Comox Valley, 1000x5 will then give the gift bags of books to families who need them.
