I am so proud of CBAL’s staff and volunteers. They are passionate about literacy and learning. They help people improve their reading and writing skills, gain workplace skills, support their children’s learning, and learn more about technology. They help newcomers to Canada improve their English skills and settle in their communities.
Currently our board and staff are planning for the next three years. We look forward to serving the communities of the Columbia Basin and Boundary with a wide range of programs for people of all ages.
Every year, CBAL holds an event for staff and volunteers called Learning for Life. This year’s event was held in Nelson in April; it was well-planned and rich in ideas for people to take home and use. I had the pleasure of presenting a Champions for Literacy award to Nelson Star publishers Chuck and Karen Bennett for their generous support of CBAL’s annual Reach a Reader fundraiser.
Thanks to all of you for making the work we do possible! We hope you enjoy hearing about how people in the Columbia Basin and Boundary are learning together.
