Donated library saves young students 20 minute hike for books – Nanaimo News Now

NANAIMO — The quest for knowledge is now far less challenging for students learning in one of the country’s most unique classroom settings.
The Nisaika Kum’tuks Elementary Centre, which operates out of the Boys and Girls Club on Nanaimo’s Fifth St., now has a library filled with books and new technology. The effort to donate the library was a collaboration of several local organizations and the Write to Read Project BC. Lt.-Gov Judith Guichon attended a ribbon cutting on Tuesday.
Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre executive director Chris Beaton said while having classrooms in a Boys and Girls Club allows them to insulate the children with greater access to services, it also lacks resources found in a traditional school.
