Reach a Reader: Books for Babies gets a new sponsor

The Williams Lake and District Credit Union recognizes the importance of starting on the literacy journey early in life.

The Williams Lake and District Credit Union recognizes the importance of starting on the literacy journey early in life.

In fact, the earlier the better. And that’s why in 2015 they were our new Books for Babies sponsor.

Books for Babies is a program of  Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy.

We deliver books to the maternity nurses both in Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. The nurses give out the book bags to new babies and their parents.

It’s exciting for parents and baby to open a bag that has four books and lots of information about the community supports that are available.

Reading with baby provides comfort and security to baby.

It is a time when the baby learns to listen and it helps baby learn language.

It’s fun to read to baby and baby is entertained by your voice.

CCPL is committed to giving every person in our area the best possible chance for success and Books for Babies is an important part of our commitment.

If you or your organization is interested in volunteering either for this program or any of our programs please call 250-392-7833.

Lil Mack is the Partners for Literacy treasurer.
