Author, Samantha Gerbeau, trying to get her head around all the books and boxes!  It took less than three hours to package all the books, on account of  all the extra hands to help out.

Author signing letters for over 200 principals of the elementary schools in the province.  Aliant Pioneers and Memorial Toastmasters and Terra Nova Toastmasters volunteer to help box almost 14,000 books for children in Newfoundland Labrador

Many, many, many books!  Exactly 13,879 books!

 

Another 1000 books were packaged by the NLTA for children located in Labrador.

 

 

Books were counted and packaged according to the number of five to seven year-olds are in each school.

Two days later…

 

April 24th,

A group of Aliant Pioneers and Memorial Toastmasters volunteered to help package almost 14,000 books for children in Newfoundland Labrador.  These books are still trickling into communities around the province and as each box is received children between 5 and 7 years old are the first in the country to see the book.  Here are all of the boxes used to ship books around the province.
