This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Children’s Book Bank & Literacy Foundation

The Children’s Book Bank builds literacy in low income communities in Toronto by distributing free books and providing literacy activities to children and their families at its storefront in Regent Park and through community partners. This year, the Children’s Book Bank has engaged prominent Canadians to share their favourite Canadian children’s book via video. Every week from March to July, one of the championed books will be read during Saturday story-time, and readers’ reactions to the book will be shared on-line.
