Our 5 Reasons To Give The Gift Of Reading
Many of you may know that our Executive Director, our Social Media Coordinator, and a few of our Visitor Center volunteers are librarians. We don’t use the term ‘former’ librarian because we believe ‘once a librarian, always a librarian!’
1) Reading together = creating wonderful memories.
When you share a reading experience with someone, you are creating special memories. Whether it is a book club or a grandchild on your lap, these special bonds can last a lifetime.
2) Books are easy to wrap. 🙂
3) No batteries or chargers required.
You can read a book anytime, anywhere without the worry of having to plug it in.
4) Books are for everyone.
Even if someone on your gift list is not a big reader, there likely exists a book about something that interests him or her.
5) Reading is cheap entertainment.
Compared to other forms of entertainment, reading can cost very little or nothing at all!
Right here in Algoma you can give the gift of reading without traveling very far or breaking the bank!
