École Central ElementaryFort St. John, British Columbia 396 / 300 Books Given
Principal Broyden Bennett
One of life's great joys is to curl up with a good book in the Great White North and read. We want to help develop this love of literature through read & feeds, author visits, library themes and more. We imagine our kids being engrossed in current, exciting titles! Sadly, we have a really old selection of books (though we removed all the books that were older than 20 years old last year).
Please help us refurbish and revitalize our library, especially the French titles (though we are happy to add any books that inspire kids to read)!!!
Suggestions From Mr. Louis:
- Lucky Luke
- Spirou et Fantasie
- Léonard Génie
- Les Tuniques Bleues
- Johan et Pirlouit

My love of reading started when I was 4 years old. I still remember waiting for my dad to get home from work and tuck me into bed with a story. I now share this tradition with my children and have found that a simple 5 minute story has jump started a love of reading as well. They look forward ...
I am so excited to have our school be a part of this program! Central is such a great school and we so desperately need an updated library for our kids.
When I was a kid, I lived in poverty. We didn’t have much; sometimes we didn’t have hot water. Life could be really hard and it could have been depressing, but it wasn’t because we always had books (A girl can escape into the worlds created by books). I remember all 4 of us girls, curled ...
For myself - I think the most life-changing books were longer chapter books my mom read aloud to me before I could read (she did a chapter a night before bed starting when I was 3). I still have a clear memory of her reading Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the ...
At the start of this school year, Ecole Central Elementary changed from a dual track school to french immersion only. I believe one of the keys to success for both the school and the students is a library offering a wide selection of French books.
My sister works at this school and always shares wonderful stories about her brilliant and creative students. I'm supporting this school because I think every student should have access to great books so they can develop a life long love of reading.
Reading is important to me because it helps to expand my world. Reading is a way to see beyond our normal reality, and to see things in a different light. It allows us to escape into a different world where we can be anyone and do anything. Reading is a way to use our imagination like we never ...
