Friends of Literacy

Become a member today!

Now in it’s second year, the Friends of Literacy program is a unique initiative to help us support the growth of literacy within the Central Okanagan. During the first year, this program raised $8,500 in support of no-cost literacy programs for low-income adults, immigrants, refugees, and seniors in the Central Okanagan. Ukrainians continue to be our largest group of learners, followed by learners from Iran and Syria. Our Digital Literacy Program supported 27 seniors in learning to navigate their new mobile phones and tablets. Your annual contribution will allow Project Literacy to better respond to the literacy needs in our community.

Individual Memberships are $100.00 per year. In recognition of your individual support, you will receive a ‘Friends of Literacy’ membership card. This card can be used to receive a 10% discount on all in-store purchases at Mosaic Books. Simply present your card during check-out to receive this discount.

Business Memberships are $500.00 per year. In recognition of your business’ support, you will receive a commemorative plaque, which recognizes your membership and endorsement. In addition, you will also receive a ‘Friends of Literacy’ membership card which can be used for a 10% discount on all in-store purchases at Mosaic Books.
