Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy had an amazing response to its 2014 Books Under Every Tree program, said community literacy coordinator Sheila Dobie.

Along with the usual donation boxes located at Silver Kettle, the Rec Centre, Perley School, Selkirk College and the Grand Forks library, two school classes held a challenge to see which class could get the most books together. The efforts of Kristen Nicolson and her Christina Lake Elementary school class, and Nicole Fraser and her Grade 11 Chemistry class resulted in a carload of books.

Thanks go to these amazing efforts along with the folks that contributed to the various locations throughout the community. Pictured is Elenore Martens showing off some of the amazing books donated this year.
