She said the group is careful with its funds, and an excellent example of that is the new Book Bin project.

Maple Ridge library on Tuesday morning, literacy volunteer tutor Jennifer Smith was sitting down with Shelby Abell.

Smith is a stay at home mom who had been looking for an opportunity to volunteer.

The bins have been placed at coffee shops, hospital waiting rooms and other areas, and people are invited to take them home, read them, and later return them.

and that funding is like core funding that groups can use to build out and leverage more funding and in kind funding," said Yamamoto. "It's been a core we could count on."

Yamamoto said the committee has created partnership initiatives, from which they have distributed 6,000 new children's books for low income families, and Preschool Literacy Explorer Air Presto Ultra Flyknit College Navy/Metallic Gold-white-comet Red Kits.

Victoria has slashed last year's $2.5 million to community adult literacy groups down to $1 million. There will be 102 organizations across the province affected.

Abell, a single mom, goes to Riverside Centre for high school upgrading, with a view to college and a career.

"We are a frugal, frugal group," said Yamamoto.

Of that $2.5 million for the province, $30,000 flowed to the local Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Katzie Literacy Committee to help coordinate literacy services. Now it will be cut to $13,000.
