    Virginia Readers' Choice
     
    Sponsored by the Virginia State Reading Association, the Virginia Readers' Choice program is treated as a club at Blue Ridge.  We begin the school year by introducing all students to the ten chosen titles.  These books have been selected through a process of nomination by the Virginia State Reading Association. 
     
    In order to participate,  students agree to read four of the ten books in the program by the end of March 2020.    Students who read all ten titles will be given a gift certificate to spend at our annual spring book fair.  Students who participate in Virginia Readers' Choice will keep a reading log - a simple check system - for the duration of the program.  Reading logs will be kept in binders at the circulation desk in the library.  Students will be able to update their logs during any visit to the library: when they come with their language arts teachers or from resource or before/after school. The purpose of this program is to encourage reading for pleasure, to broaden student awareness of literature as a lifetime enjoyment, and to honor favorite books and authors.
     
    As an incentive, we offer a gift certificate to students who read and record all ten titles in the program. The gift certificate can be used at our spring book fair which will be held during the week of April 20, 2020.
