Book sets donated to Mission prisons

Mission Literacy in Motion Society has donated three sets of children's books

The Mission Literacy in Motion Society has donated three sets of children’s books to both Ferndale and Mission federal prisons to enable inmates to read to their kids during visits.

The books will be placed in the visitors’ centre of each prison, as well as the private family visit units at each site, where dads can read with their children. They will offer an alternative to the video games or television programs often offered to children.

The society promotes literacy throughout Mission and the north side of the Fraser River. It has received a supply of new books from publishers, and organizations such as First Books makes these books available, free of charge, to the community.

The society is currently recruiting new volunteers for its next training session. For a list of other programs, please visit literacyinmission.org.
