READING LINK CHALLENGE
Reading Link Challenge (RLC) is an award-winning public library/school partnership program that promotes the "sport of reading." Librarians from FVRL work with school librarians and teachers to recruit teams of six 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 teams participate in one or more levels of challenge, with the winning teams advancing to higher levels of competition within the community. At FVRL, the levels of challenge are as follows:
- School Challenge – All teams challenge other teams in their school.
- Library Challenge - School winning teams challenge each other at an FVRL location.
- Community Challenge – FVRL Library Challenge winning teams challenge each other.
- Grand Challenge – Winning teams from FVRL, Coquitlam, North Vancouver City, Port Moody and Surrey Library systems challenge each other to determine an overall winning team.
Participants learn about teamwork and how to read for retention. RLC also promotes public library usage and encourages children to develop a lifelong habit of reading for pleasure.
