History of CanLit for Kids Books

CanLit for Kids Books Ltd. is a wholesaler of Canadian books, established by a team of retired teacher-librarians in 1996. The company changed hands in 2003 when Glen Turnbull and his partner Bobbie Turner took over and ran the company until August 2018 when the current owner, Tracy Stremlaw, with a background in Library and information Technology, took the helm.

CanLit specializes in addressing the need for high quality Canadian books for elementary, middle and secondary school libraries across the country.

CanLit offers quality library book selection expertise to schools and educational organizations. CanLit is a proud member and supporter of such organizations as The Canadian Children's Book Centre, and the Ontario Library Association.

The head office of CanLit is located in Gibsons, British Columbia on the beautiful SUnshine Coast.
