Books for Treats is back this Halloween in Comox, Cumberland, and Courtenay.  Volunteers and librarians will be handing out books to children in all three municipalities.

In Courtenay, make the library one of your downtown parade stops – come by and choose a book treat on Saturday, Oct. 31 between 3 and 5 p.m.

In Comox, Books for Treats volunteers will be in the Comox Mall on Friday, Oct. 30, from 3-5 p.m. Come at 3 p.m. to listen to a spooky story read by Comox librarian Nancy Duncan, and then choose your book treat.

In Cumberland, Books for Treats is at the Cumberland library from 4-5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31. Swing by to get your book treat!

Books feed children’s minds. Comox Valley Lifelong Learning Association and partners are encouraging people to hand out book treats instead of candy. Consider putting a basket of gently-used books out for trick-or-treaters this Halloween. You will be a popular stop!

Books for Treats is a book distribution campaign coordinated by the Comox Valley Lifelong Learning Association and funded through Raise-a-Reader.

For more information, visit or or phone 250-897-2623.
