Lift Up Your Library Fundraiser!

The Parent Council Equity Committee would like to thank everyone for their support of the Lift Up Your Library fundraiser and the book fair on February 14th. The book fair raised over $1000

The fundraiser continues until March 21st both online (https://anotherstory.ca/?q=h.tviewer&e_def_id=EhuZE8YdnjI) and in person at Another Story Bookshop, located at 315 Roncesvalles Avenue. 

You'll get 20% off all purchases made for the library. Another Story has a phenomenal collection of children's, young adult and adult books so if you happen to make some purchases for your home collection, they will convert 20% of those sales into a store credit for the IRC library! 

If you'd like to support the IRC library but don't have the time to go through the librarian's wish list, you can also make a donation through the School Cash Online system:
 
1. From the main page select "Make a Donation"
2. Select Indian Road Crescent Junior Public School from the "Fund Destination" drop down bar.
3. Please mention "Library" in the messages. 

We're hoping to raise $5000 for our school library and so far we've raised just over $1500! Let's try to reach that goal by March 21st to expand and update the selection of books available to our kids! If you have any questions please contact Kara Stewart-Agostino at kandragostino@gmail.com.
Thank you,
-IRC Parent Council

LIFT UP YOUR LIBRARY

Lift Up Your Library: A book registry to update and expand our school library
Ms Khokhar, the IRC librarian, has a created a $4,500 wish list to expand and update the IRC library. The Parent Council Equity Committee has partnered with Another Story Bookshop to create a book registry for our school library. Help us Lift Up the Library by purchasing a book at Another Story Bookshop.

There are three ways you can purchase books from the registry:

#1 on February 14th at the book fair in the front entrance of the school.
#2 Visit the store in person at 315 Roncesvalles Avenue and ask about the IRC book registry.
#3 Purchase online through this link http://anotherstory.ca

Bonus! Two other ways to help:
  • Please share this with relatives who might be looking for ways to help your kids’ school.
  • Does your child have a birthday party coming up? Consider asking guests to support the school library instead of a traditional gift
