Drop Everything and Read

DEAR2014The annual DEAR Challenge is coming up: Monday, October 27, 2014.  The BCTLA and the BCTF challenge all British Columbians to Drop Everything and Read for 20 Minutes. Most of Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary already does this every day, so this should not be a problem!

The DEAR Challenge is just one aspect of National School Library Day, Canadian Library Month and International School Library Month.

 

Canadian Library Month

In addition to the fact that October is ISLM (International School Library Month), October is also Canadian Library Month!  As Canadians we enjoy and benefit from some of the best libraries in the world.  Canadian Library Month is a chance to celebrate all of our libraries, including Public Libraries, School Libraries and more. Go to the Canadian Libary Association’s CLM page to find out more!
