Red Cedar Reading Group

Each year, Canadian authors and illustrators create many wonderful books for children, some meant to entertain, others to educate. Your job as a Red Cedar reader is to read as many as you can, and then decide which ones are best.

For kids in grades 4 to 7, the Red Cedar Reading Group meets once every three weeks from late November 2016 until April 2017, discussing books and participating in activities or discussions related to them. Running from 3:45 to 4:30 p.m., the meetings will be on Nov. 25, Dec. 16, Jan. 6, Jan. 27, Feb. 17, March 10, March 31 and Apr. 21. Meetings will be in the Nancy Bennett Room at the Poirier branch. Each will be hosted by a Librarian (Chris Miller) or a Program Assistant (Ashley Jiwani). 

To register, e-mail Chris Miller at cmiller@coqlibrary.ca

The Red Cedar Young Readers' Choice Awards are given annually to the authors and illustrators of the best Canadian children's books, as chosen by kids in B.C. After votes from Red Cedar groups around the province are counted, two titles will emerge: one novel and one information book. For a full list of the nominees, go to the Red Cedar website:
