CFUW Library Award 2016

The Library Award Winner for 2016 is the Shelldale Better Beginnings, Better Futures in Guelph, Ontario. They were nominated by CFUW Guelph.

Their proposed project is a multicultural family literacy program, which utilizes books written in multiple languages to help teach English to immigrant families. It is a multi- generational program, focusing on the family as a whole.

Although it is a literacy based project, participants will benefit in many other ways: social opportunities, capacity building, community involvement, and lessening the sense of isolation by encouraging participation in group activities.
