  A comment from the librarian Patrice “It was such a pleasure to meet you today and to learn more about the BC Hydro Upper Island Power Pioneers.   Your commitment to making a positive impact in your community is so admirable.  As I said in our meeting, I really wanted to use the $400.00 that your group has so generously offered to focus on reading materials for the more reluctant readers in our school.  As discussed, graphic novels provide a very engaging support for readers whose ability might not match with their more mature interests.”
