About the program

The  Westshore “1000 X 5” Children’s Book Recycling Project was started in September 2012.  Through this initiative, gently-used children’s picture books are collected from the community, screened for suitability, counted, labelled, sorted, and bagged for distribution to young children (birth-5 years) and their families in the Westshore.  Drop off locations are at every School District #62 elementary school in the Westshore area. Just ask the office for the location of the donation box. We share books on a rotating basis to 250 families per month.
