“Thank you to The Book Bags. You always find such a variety of reading matter for me.  You have introduced me to so many new authors that have left me with many new thoughts and ideas. I am 91 years old and unable to get out to find books.  My monthly bag of books is a lovely gift. The Book Bags is a wonderful addition to the community and to my life. Once again, a big thank you!”

“I have always appreciated everything The Book Bags do for me. Pamela (Book Bags founder) always chooses such interesting books, some based upon my reading tastes but others she picks because she thinks I will enjoy them. She’s right! The monthly bag of books is a wonderful service. I also love the friendly voice on our monthly call. Thank you.”

“I am so thankful for my book lady who brings me books to read.
I am nearing the old age of 90 so it’s difficult to go to a library. This ministry is so appreciated.
Thanks to my book lady I have books to read to keep my mind occupied, keep learning and be intellectually challenged.”

“A thank you for Book Bags, fir providing a remarkable service, through Covid and beyond; keeping my wife and myself with a constant supply of books of varies and eclectic variety. WE regard the Book Bgas organisation as an essential service for shit-ins and mobility challenged users. Well done. Please keep up the excellent service.”

“I became a member of Book Bags during the Covid 19 pandemic.  At that time, access to new and interesting reading material was greatly scaled back or non-existent with the closure of libraries for a time.


I read about Book Bags in our local newspaper and decided to contact Pamela.  She was warm and friendly and happy to reach out.


Since that time, one of the Volunteers, Edie Hayden, has contacted me on a regular monthly basis.  Always cheery and pleasant, Edie went over and above, to find out what my interests were, and the kinds of books, puzzles and magazines I like.  I enjoy my chats and visits with her, and am happy with the reading material she thinks I might enjoy.


I hope to see the Book Bags service continue as I believe it fills a void in the community which had been over-looked before.  As well, it will be encouraging to explore new subjects of interest and new releases as they become available.


Thank you to all the Book Bags staff.”

“Dear Sir or Madam,

Just a short note to tell how much I look forward every month, to get a new set of books from the ‘Book Bags’. It’s like Christmas morning, when I open the bag and see all those lovely books. It’s like a friend has come to visit. I’m 88 years old and don’t get out to get books. When I heard about the ‘Book Bags’ I joined that same day, and I’m glad I did. May we have the “Book Bags” around for many more years.”

A happy reader,
