Bookworm Friends is a free program that connects young children with older adults to share the joys of reading. When a child or group of children becomes a Bookworm Friend, they are matched with a passionate reader! Each week they read together at a time that suits them and their volunteer reader, in-person or online.
We loan a new set of books each month, or each match picks their own from school or public libraries.
This program is open to all families with children ages 3-9, classrooms, and daycares.
Contact Annette Williams, Literacy Outreach Coordinator at 604-392-2404 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more, sign up your children or students, or volunteer as a reader.
