“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.”

If you would like to read any of the Red Cedar 2013 books, you can find them in the red tubs underneath the Red Cedar bulletin board in the library.
