A tremendously gracious 'THANK YOU!' to all British Columbia students and teachers, librarians, volunteers, and community literacy advocates for their support of the seventh annual 'Drop Everything and Read' event (@BCTLA_DEaR)!
Another amazing reason to celebrate a successful event...?
With nearly 72 000 students involved in this year's event the participation rate has increased by over 30% from last year! Stunning! And there's still more room for participation!
Let's continued the charge for literacy and reading in BC! Indeed, 'friends of DEaR' have begun to spread to other public and municipal institutions. Surely, a ''DEaR' epidemic is not too far off...
Stay tuned for how DEAR 2013 was celebrated around the province last month!
