More kids books purchased for Mission Library

These new books can be useful for school projects and help young students explore the world around them.

The Mission Friends of the Library have donated $1,000 towards the purchase of additional non-fiction books for school-aged children in both French and English.

This donation was made possible through a grant from the District of Mission and enhances the children’s book collection at the Mission Library.

These new books, along with the rest of the growing collection of children’s books at the Mission Library, can be useful for school projects and help young students explore the world around them.

Families may wish to check out these and other library materials to help them with the new B.C. curriculum.

School-aged programming also continues to be popular at the library and fall programs are just getting started. Watch out for Lego Club, Make It and Take It, and the new “STEAM” station (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) coming soon.

The Mission Friends of the Library’s next meeting is Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 2 p.m. in the library. For more information, visit or call 604-826-6610.
