Become a Book Bash Champion of Literacy!
Book Bash! challenges readers of all ages in Greater Victoria to obtain donation pledges from friends and family for every 100 pages they read in August. Participants are invited to challenge themselves, friends, groups or businesses to see who reads the most pages. And there will be prizes!

VLC’s programs include Reading Partners (a program that pairs adult tutors with reluctant child readers), PenPals (a program that pairs children with adults for supervised letter exchanges), adult tutoring (a program that pairs adult tutors with adult learners) and more.The Victoria Literacy Connection works with First Nation’s children and adults in all programs, and has run some collaborative programs with some nations in the past.
