(Tuesday, October 16, 2018) - The Adopt-A-Library Literacy Program’s WOW! Reading Challenge began in Pictou County twelve years ago, and has grown to include divisions for all ages (daycares and Preschools, Elementary, Middle/Junior High, and High Schools, and new this year – private/separate and home-schools too!). “We’re excited to begin!” says John Kennedy, AAL Program Coordinator, “It’s our 12th year, and we’re still going strong!”
This reading competition is open to all schools, preschools, private/separate schools and home-schools in Pictou and Antigonish Counties, and it is free! All competitions will close on April 1st, 2019. Preschools and Elementary Schools will count the total number of books read, while Middle Schools and High Schools will count the total number of pages read.
