Reading Link Challenge 2018-19
Reading Link Challenge (RLC) is an award-winning public library/school partnership program that promotes the "sport of reading." Librarians from the Fraser Valley Regional Library in British Columbia work with school librarians and teachers to recruit teams of students in grades 4 and 5. The program is run as a series of quiz/trivia challenges with questions based on six preselected books.
All six of this year's RLC books are included on this page.
The books on this page are specifically for participants who need alternate formats. To sign up for NNELS, please contact your nearest public library.
If you have any questions about how to use these formats with the tools you have, please ask your librarian or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy reading, and good luck!
