Monday, October 25 is BC School Library Day and the day of the annual DEAR Challenge. Every student and staff member in the school, along with all British Columbians all over the province, are challenged to “Drop Everything and Read.”
Make sure that you are prepared for 15-20 minutes of glorious silent reading. Read something that you have chosen, something that you are interested in for your own reasons, outside of required reading assigned by a teacher.
Read to escape. Read to learn. Read for fun. Read to experience new things. Read to be entertained. Read to find out more about things you are interested in. Read to laugh or to cry or to be scared. Read for joy of reading.
If you need help finding something good to read, you have many options, not least of which is coming down to your school library!
