Society director Bryan Sommer’s book supports Dolly Parton Imagination Library

Bryan Sommer, a South Surrey investment advisor and board member/treasurer of Sources Community Resources Society, has used the official launch of his new book to support a youth-literacy initiative in the community.

Rather than sell the book, Sommer was giving it away to those interested during his Nov. 23, 2016 release event, and for every book he handed out, he pledged to donate one book to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, a youth literacy initiative that, locally, is administered by Sources.

“It was a way of saying thank you to our clients, friends and family for all their support… it was a lot of fun,” Sommer said of the event.
