Back to Books campaign supports literacy and puts books in school libraries

Learning to Read, Reading to Learn

This is the message behind a new campaign designed to put books in school libraries. The Back to Books campaign, launched by the Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation, is the first of its kind in Ontario. The goal of Back to Books is to raise $1000 per grade for all 54 elementary and secondary schools within the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board (HPEDSB). The overall campaign goal is $400,000.

"Our Back to Books campaign will invite community, corporate,service club and individual philanthropic support" says Maribeth deSnoo, Executive Director of The Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation"

It is anticipated that the campaign will come to a successful conclusion at the end of this school year. One of the final phases will be a community-wide mailing throughout Hastings and Prince Edward counties," she adds.

As children's author David Bouchard noted during a recent presentation in Belleville, great books will encourage students to read. If these books can be easily found within our school libraries, the benefit is obvious. The Learning Foundation is

committed to supporting literacy and to providing funds to purchase quality books and reference materials that enhance school libraries.

Initial gifts to Back to Books include a $10,000 donation from CIBC and a $5,000 donation from Mark Tripp and his Slush Puppie company.

The Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation is the registered charitable foundation established by the Hastings

and Prince Edward District School Board to enhance public education by raising money for services and initiatives

that could not otherwise be offered by the Board.
