Little Libraries of Fort Providence

The Cause

I want to bring the community more opportunities to be involved in positive literacy. The legacy of residential school in the community has negatively impacted the community's view on schooling, and in relation literacy. Putting little libraries throughout town with books and hosting literary events that are of interest to the community will hopefully encourage more people to read for pleasure rather than just for educational requirements.

Who Will it Benefit?

This idea will benefit the hundreds of community residents. It will give literary access to all community members - young and elders. It will also, in turn, give future children and youth positive role models in those who use their literacy skills to further their education and careers.
