VIDEO: 1000×5 Children’s Book Recycling Project connects kids with thousands of pages

The 1000×5 Children’s Book Recycling Project is helping drive a massive book recycling ecosystem in Greater Victoria — fueled by the loving hands of volunteers who collect children’s books, restore them, and redistribute them to kids and families in need.

1000×5 is a superhero for early childhood literacy! To date, the non-profit has given out over 316,000 free books to families and children through 27 partner agencies in the region. It’s funded in part by the Victoria Foundation’s Community Grants Program.
