“I believe that our frequent trips to the library encouraged Benjamin’s love of reading. We hope over time, he will continue to think about his community and organizations that are meaningful to him. The VPL is such a valuable part of our communities.”

- Benjamin's Mom

Benjamin’s selfless act of giving back is exactly what Giving Tuesday is all about. Once a year, Giving Tuesday Canada asks you to consider making a gift to your favourite charity. We hope this year, just like Benjamin, you choose to support the Vancouver Public Library Foundation. Your donation will help thousands of kids across our city develop the early reading skills they need to succeed – and you’ll help make Benjamin’s birthday wish come true!
