Welcome to Ottawa Bookmates
We're starting a non for profit organization in Ottawa Ontario called Ottawa Bookmates where we aim to promote the joy of reading and learning throughout the community of Ottawa. This organization was started by teachers and parents alike whom all believe that reading is a life skill unlike any other, and we want to encourage new families in the area to help their children develop literacy skills and a love of reading at an early age.
Our main goals are the following:
- To promote reading and literacy awareness throughout the Ottawa area.
- Develop reading activities with community organizations, schools and parents.
- To develop reading and literacy activities for local families that can be taught at home.
- Build a local library and literacy centre with ongoing weekly events and activities.
If you would like to contribute in any way please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also looking for donations to help put on an upcoming reading festival in the Ottawa area. Click here for more information on how you can donate and help us out today!
