1. I object to being asked at the checkout to donate. 2. I was surprised to learn that there are conditions attached to your grants to schools. 3. Children can love to read books not purchased by schools from Indigo / Chapters 4. Shocked that recipient schools, buying in bulk, have to pay you full retail prices for books Conclusion: Love of Reading Foundation isn't all it's cracked up to be. My warm fuzzy feeling towards your Love To Read Foundation is gone.

February 20, 2015FYI

Just watched the marketplace story about your Love of Books foundation it's good to know that the schools that win the money have to buy the books at retail price at your store, i found this very insightful.

How can we nominate a school in our area?

Hi, I notice that you only fund elementary schools (which is a tad frustrating, as many adolescents struggle with literacy and access to books). I am a teacher/librarian at a grade 7-12 school . . . would we be able to apply for our middle years program?

Wonderful program So glad to see Queen Victoria Public School on the list. Understand they are going from up to grade 6 to up to grade 8. So could really use funds for new books. A relative has just put this information up on Facebook. My daughter brought this wonderful program to our attention and I'm so glad she did. Something that I would definitely support during my next visits to Chapters

I am a grade two teacher in a small K- 12 rural school in Bentley, Alberta. Would Indigo provide free books to our school? Please share information with me so that I can proceed with this request. Thank you. Joanne Simpson Bentley School Bentley, Alberta T0C 0J0 403-341-4153 ext 4369

Hi Kathleen, the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation was established to address the underfunding of Canadian elementary school libraries and our focus is on children's literacy. Therefore, the Literacy Fund grant is intended for provincially funded schools that serve grades JK-8.

SD 75 in Mission BC is leading the Province with Middle Schools being included in the high schools. We are entering our 2nd year, as a member of the PAC this has created quite a strain on our school Library to host books that cater from 11 year olds to 18 year olds and we are in desperate need to increase our reading selection as the "wait list" for reading material is sometimes weeks if not months long. How can we apply for the Indigo/Chapters Foundation Grant?

About the time Betty Gibson school in Brandon, Mb got word they had been accepted for the $60,000 grant for books I became a volunteer in the library. I was given the pleasure of processing all the books to get them shelf ready. How great it was to witness the excitement among the teachers and students. How rich we all felt! as the library was full of life and joy. Thank-you for this great program

Hi Linda, the schools on this map are high-needs elementary schools that received the Literacy Fund grant since 2005. Perhaps your school was part of our Adopt a School program?

I was wondering why only certain schools was on your list ,my school Pioneer Public school isn't on your list

What a difference it has made for our community. Students are excited about reading new books. Their is something magical about cracking open a brand new book and experiencing the excitement it brings.

Sheila, the application form for the 2013 grant will be available on this website starting in September.

I just replayed the announcement of Weledeh Catholic School getting Indigo LOR funding in 2007. Listening to the interview brought tears to my eyes. I am no longer at Weledeh, but as I go into the school I look around and still see how the LOR grant changed the school. Books are everywhere. Reading and talking about reading is important and the school continues to focus on improving reading skills and enjoyment. There is no doubt that the LOR grant made a huge difference for our school.

I just finished listening to the day Prince Charles received the wonderful call from Indigo - I can hardly believe that was 4 years ago. We are still very appreciative of receiving this generous gift. We increased the number of books in classrooms and the library along with being able to give books to children to take home. Thank you Indigo for continuing to spread the Love of Reading to so many children!

We have just finished our Year 3 of the Love of Reading Grant. After such a whirlwind of book choosing and buying we are now able to fully enjoy the books! The teachers have been using great resources and classroom books for the past 3 years, and their collections are certainly being well used by the students. But now in the library I am getting to assimilate all those great stories and research books into our library program. You will be amazed at the difference these books will make with your reading programs, and the delight the students have when they find a new book. Congratulations to all the new Indigo Love of Reading Schools.
