On Father’s Day, June 19th, NBUC will be celebrating and recognizing National Aboriginal Day which occurs on Tuesday June 21st. To celebrate this day, we will be recognizing our amazing Book Buddy relationship that we have with the 5 Federal Schools at Six Nations in Oshwekan.
In previous years, we have been able to outfit their school Libraries with selected Indigenous books, send new and gently used books to the students and teachers for their own private use and we have also sent money to each of the schools to use as they wish.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Step 1: Drop off your gently used and new books! Bins will be set up by the Info Desk at NBUC and marked Six Nations Book Buddies. The book collection will begin Sunday, May 8th and will be set up until June 19th.
Step 2: Donate! On June 19th, we are planning to have a Bucket Offering to raise funds to purchase specialized Indigenous Book Bundles to be sent to 5 Federal Schools at Six Nations in Oshwekan.
