Two kids collect 4,000 books
Nice Story From Canada where Unable to imagine a world without reading, two Grade 6 pupils in London have collected 4,000 books for Ontario's First Nations communities. Avid readers Tim Ebbs and Brent Greenway spearheaded the book drive at Westmount public school two weeks ago in response to a public request from Lt.-Gov. James Bartleman, who recently toured Northern Ontario.
"I love books. I read all the time. I don't know how you can live without reading," said Ebbs yesterday, standing amid tables scattered with books at Westmount.
