The 2017 CBC Calgary Reads Big Book Sale was another tremendous success. We could not have achieved our fundraising goal without our volunteers, our corporate sponsors, your donated books and all of the motivated shoppers. With your support, we are able to continue our work to ensure all children have the opportunity to read with confidence and joy.
Reading for as little as 6 minutes is sufficient to reduce stress levels by 60%.
It slows the heart beat, eases muscle tension and alters the state of mind.
