Proud to support the Edmonton Public Library and “Ready, Set READ!”

At CAM LLP, we’re proud to support the EPL’s early literacy program, “Ready, Set READ!” in partnership with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Last Friday, October 20, we were inspired and educated at EPL’s fundraising evening featuring the award-winning actor Rainn Wilson (The Office).

EPL’s program is igniting a passion for reading by providing children ages 1 to 5 with new age-appropriate books delivered to their homes every month!

Research has proven that a home filled with books can pave the way for a child’s academic success, transcending barriers of education and background. For example, did you know that children from book-filled homes achieve 3 more years of schooling compared to those from bookless environments? Continue reading
