An elementary school in Surrey is the recipient of a 2012 Indigo Love of Reading Foundation grant to stock its library with new books.

Cedar Hills Elementary will receive $95,000 over three years for its application which demonstrated a clear understanding of the importance of childhood reading in nurturing a well-grounded future generation.

The school is among 20 elementary schools who will share the Love of Reading Foundations annual $1.5 million allocation.

Schools interested in applying for 2013 Indigo Love of Reading Foundation Literacy Fund Grants can download an application this fall at www.loveofreading.org
