In celebration of World Book Day (April 23, 2019), the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation, partnering with Indigo Books & Music, is donating 50,000 books to high-needs schools!

We are marking this special occasion by donating classic book sets to Canadian high-needs elementary schools that were participants in our 2018 Adopt a School program.

This classic book set includes cherished pieces of literature that will be great additions to any school’s library. We know these classic tales will be cherished by the participating schools and will ignite their students’ imagination and wonder.

Since 2004, the Foundation has been dedicated to putting books in the hands of Canadian children of high-needs elementary schools. This is part of our commitment to transforming the lives of children across the country by inspiring in them a love of reading. Together with Indigo, its customers and its employees, we have provided over $30 million to over 3,000 schools, impacting more than 1,000,000 children.

We are investing in a Canada where every child has access to books. Learn more about the high-needs schools we have supported in the past.
