The Honourable Judith Guichon continued to build on the literacy program the previous Lieutenant Governor, the Honourable Steven Point, developed with Rotary. Through the Write to Read Project, Rotary clubs throughout British Columbia partner with remote communities and help build community libraries and other much needed amenities. With the support of the Government House Foundation, the Lieutenant Governor visits these communities and officially opens their libraries.
