Our school is in the Jane and Finch area of Toronto. We have a number of students who are new to Canada and English is their second language. With the books we purchase from Indigo throught the Adopt a School program we will be able to provide rich literature to our students. This in turn makes a significant difference in the literacy development of our children.

"I remember my school library being magical. Black Beauty, Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, and so many more! There were enrichment programs, The Voyage of the Mimi, and new universes I could escape to. Books helped make me the person I am today. Every child deserves the chance to enter this world."

"I remember the excitement and joy of hearing we were going to the Library! It would be a time to search and find the special books I was going to take out and enjoy. Reading is a true love of mine and I think having an amazing library is key to sparking that love. I hope the students at Firgrove find that love and enjoy their books! "
