"The event this year is scheduled for Monday, October 22 from 11:00-11:30 AM, and it will involve the participation of over 55 000 students, teachers, and volunteers from around BC. DEAR is supported by the BC Library Association (representing near 90 public libraries) to help us to celebrate the important role that school libraries and teacher-librarians play in the development of a life-long love of reading among young people. Recent research has shown that a school library, when properly staffed by a trained teacher-librarian, DOES have an impact on reading and literacy scores."
