Douglas Harkness School

Calgary, Alberta 55 / 290 Books Given

Principal Laura Devitt We are a school in a high needs area in Calgary where many of our students do not have access to books at home. Many of our parents do not speak or read in English to be able to read with their children nightly, and do not have books written in their language of origin.

Our collection is small but well-loved and we strive to offer good literature to students to ignite a lifelong passion for reading. Our Parent Council does some activities to help provide extra library books, however for the past few years we have not been able to have an active Parent Society that could do fundraising that would raise larger amounts for donation. Many of our books are becoming outdated and we would like to be able to refresh our collection to offer students more current and exciting choices.
