Cariboo Reads 2023/2024

Come down to the library and discover our Cariboo Reads display to start your reading journey. There are 17 books to pick from this year. Students must read a minimum of 6 Cariboo Reads Books and complete 6 Cariboo Reads Forms to be included in the draw for the Literacy Week Prizes. (6 books + forms = 1 entry, 11 books + forms = 3 entries, all 17 books + forms = 5 entries)

So come on down to the library, sign out a Cariboo Reads title, read it and return it for someone else to enjoy. Please see Ms. Kawas in the library for more information.

Orange Shirt Day – Friday September 29, 2023

Orange Shirt Day is commemorated on Friday, September 29, 2023 throughout the Burnaby School District, and throughout the Province of B.C. on Saturday, September 30, 2023. The Burnaby School District – together with the Burnaby Teachers Association – will be honouring residential school survivors on these days. We encourage all students to show their support by wearing an orange shirt to school on Friday, September 29, 2023.

The Cariboo Hill Library shows our support with this thoughtful display which has been up since mid September. For more information about this important day go to the official Orange Shirt Day website.

Professional resources and lesson plans related to Orange Shirt Day can be found here.
