Parkland's librarian presents human books

...Coming up for Parkland and many other area schools Oct. 26 is the annual Drop Everything and Read Challenge, which will see people in schools, offices and other gathering places stop whatever they're doing at 11 a.m. and read for 15 to 20 minutes.

"We've got the support of the school community," Rutten said. "Everybody for at least 15 minutes, including the office staff and maintenance staff, will drop everything and they will read."

Reynolds Secondary teacher-librarian Karen Lindsay, an executive member of the B.C. Teacher-Librarians' Association, said a challenge has again been issued for MLAs to be part of the event. Last year, Premier Gordon Campbell, then-education minister Shirley Bond and many other provincial politicians agreed to take part.
