Story As Community

In partnership with Okanagan Regional Libraries, we cultivate welcoming spaces for newcomer families in the Okanagan. Our Family Reading Programs are facilitated for parents and children to attend together. Volunteer Reading Mentors are paired with families to support children with their reading goals and parents will also have the opportunity to practice their English conversation and reading.
Each session runs for 6 – 8 weeks with a weekly session from 5:30 – 6:30 pm.
The cost is FREE. 
Registration is now open for our Winter 2024 Session. 
Tuesdays: ORL Rutland 
Wednesdays: ORL Downtown Kelowna
Thursdays: ORL Vernon
To volunteer as a Reading Mentor, please complete our online volunteer application to begin the screening process.
