Get Involved

Thank you for your interest in Your Literacy Connection Westshore! We value the integral contributions community members make, how they impact change, and support us in accomplishing our goals. We’d love to hear some ways in which you can share your knowledge, talents and skills with Your Literacy Connection Westshore.

Here are a few areas where you can get involved! 

Donate Your Books!

Your Literacy Connection Westshore and Discover Books have partnered together to provide gently used books to various community partners and  organizations throughout the Westshore. If you’d like to help us ‘spread the word’ you can donate any unwanted books at one of the Discover book bins listed below and these will be recycled back into our community programs.  *all types of books accepted

Westshore Drop-off Locations:


Walmart @ Langford Parkway – 868 Langford Parkway

Superstore @ Langford Parkway – 835 Langford Parkway
Corona Foods – 2155 Sooke Road
Helmcken Market – 38 Helmcken Rd

Alternatively, you can donate your gently used picture books to our Westshore 1000 x 5 Program which aims to provide every child the opportunity to have 1000 books read to them by the age of five, and to increase awareness of the importance of literacy in the early years.  If you have picture books to donate, please contact Denise Brown at 250 479 7746 or leahybrown@shaw.ca to find a location near you.
