“The library is at the very centre of literacy and this is why the Alligator Pie program is so important. I believe that once a reader always a reader, and that everyone deserves access to books throughout their lives.”

- Allan MacDougall

Much of the success of the Harry Potter series in Canada can be credited to Allan MacDougall’s belief that books and reading can bring people together. Now, thanks to Allan’s conviction that reading enriches everyone’s life, daycare centres across Vancouver have the tools they need to instill a love of reading from the earliest childhood years.
