Literacy Central Vancouver

We visited the bookstore, which is how they make their money for other programs. For me, there is a lot and almost maze-like. The aisles are slightly small. But overall the store is a nice place to look through. It is located downtown near other stores so you are not going out of your way.

We make every effort to be a bright spot in the downtown where you can sit and relax, bring in a cup of coffee or even your dog on a leash. There are a friendly, dedicated and highly knowledgeable staff and volunteers that are ready to help you find that particular book or to offer suggestions and who knows, you may even find a treasure!

Well Read Books is Literacy Central’s primary source of funding for our free literacy tutoring programs. The books are all donated by the community and through our partnership with the Rotary Club of Nanaimo Daybreak who has placed well-marked book boxes around the community and works tirelessly to collect and deliver books to the store every week.
