BOOK DRIVE for beaver creek


BCFI is thrilled to thank Thomas Heintzman, who collected nearly 4,000 books from neighbours, colleagues, and friends during a month-long book drive for Beaver Creek Institution's library. Today, we loaded the books into a moving truck and Thomas drove them up to the library. Many thanks to everyone who donated books!








BCFI is excited to announce that one of our book club members, and scholarship recipients has recently graduated with his university degree! Congratulations on this amazing accomplishment!
