Multi-site Videoconferencing: Indigo Love of Reading Foundation

Established 10 years ago by Indigo Books and Music to address the underfunding of school libraries, each year the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation commits $1.5 million to 20 high-needs elementary schools in Canada, transforming their libraries and children’s lives with new books. To date, Love of Reading has given more than $17 million to over 1,600 elementary schools across Canada through its Literacy Fund grant and the Adopt a School community fundraising program.
