Library and Literacy


Welcome to the BRE library website!  My name is Ms. Mah and I am the school’s teacher librarian.

One of our missions at the library is to instill the love of reading.  The library is usually open in the morning at 8:45 am and during long recess at 12:05 pm to 12:40 pm.

The 2018 Reading Link Challenge for intermediate students has begun and below are the six books for this year’s challenge!  Students have been reading over the next few months and a challenge to answer various questions about the novels will follow.  A team of six students will represent our school at the public library where the final challenge with other schools in the district will take place in the spring .

Our library is also starting a challenge for all BRE students this year using the 100 Best Books for BC students in elementary schools as a guide.  Students can sign up to see how many books they can read off this book list chosen by BC teachers.  Sign up sheets are available at the counter or by asking our library clerk, Mrs. McKechnie.  There will be some fun prizes to be given away to all participants!
