Well Read Books

Well Read Books is Literacy Central's primary source of funding for our free literacy tutoring programs. The books are all donated by the community and through our partnership with the Rotary Club of Nanaimo Daybreak who have placed well marked book boxes around the community and work tirelessly to collect and deliver books to the store every week.
