Literacy Now hosts book exchange

Literacy Now will host popular reading tent at Okanagan Children's Festival Thursday to Saturday in Penticton.

Literacy Now South Okanagan-Similkameen wants to replace any books that are collecting dust on children’s bookshelves.

The organization will host a book exchange at the Rotary Okanagan International Children’s Festival, from Thursday to Saturday at Okanagan Lake Park.

“We have a good stockpile of books to start off with,” says outreach coordinator Joan Chambers. “Children can bring a book or two and trade for something new to read.”

The popular reading tent at the Okanagan Children’s Festival will be back again this year, offering a quiet place to relax and enjoy a book.

Festival-goers can bring something of their own to read or borrow a book from the collection.

Literacy Now will also have a booth display providing information about literacy services for everyone, from babies to seniors.

“We are pleased to be able to bring a literacy component to the Children’s Festival,” said Chambers, adding this is the fourth year they have participated.
