Grant funding benefits literacy

Pages Bookstore, home of the Fraser-Cascade Literacy Centre, has a new look thanks to a grant from the Farm Credit Canada AgriSpirit Fund.

Pages Bookstore, home of the Fraser-Cascade Literacy Centre, has a new look thanks to a grant from the Farm Credit Canada AgriSpirit Fund.

The Hope book store and drop-in centre manager Naydeen Spencer has used the funding to build twenty new bookcases. “I’m just so happy to have bookcases that look great, function well and increase overall organization of the store,” said Spencer.

Built by craftsman Rob Hislop, of Hope,“these new bookcases are instrumental in achieving our goal to grow sales by increasing the flow and function as well as the image of Pages Bookstore,” says Spencer.

“The move to a bigger, brighter more central location was the beginning of a transformation for this non-profit bookstore and literacy centre.  Extra space to hold book signings, readings and special events has been a major advantage, turning Pages Bookstore into a community social hub,” added Spencer.

Pages Bookstore and the Fraser-Cascade Literacy Centre are operated by the New Page Human Services Society, a charitable organization, that provides literacy services and programs like Story Time in the Park, adult literacy, and computer courses at the Fraser Street location.
