       BC SUMMER READING CLUB

 The BC Summer Reading Club (BCSRC) is a free reading program for children designed to encourage reading over the summer months when many school age children are not in school. The BCSRC "is a great way to practice or improve reading skills over the summer, meet new friends, learn more about your community and library, and have fun!"

The BCSRC program is offered each summer through the Cariboo Regional District's three area libraries in 100 Mile House, Quesnel, and Williams Lake. Check back here regularly for more information, and follow us on Facebook.

Red Cedar Book Awards

The Red Cedar is British Columbia's Young Reader's Choice book award. Every year thousands of children between grades 4 and 7 from across the province are invited to read books from the nominated lists of non-fiction and fiction titles, and vote for their favourite.

The purpose of the program is to promote quality Canadian literature and to enrich and broaden a student's reading experience. The Red Cedar Book Awards are "launched" every November during Canadian Children's Book week and students have the next six months to read and decide which one of the titles on the list they feel is the best Canadian book of the year. 

 A list of Red Cedar Book Award winners can be found here.
