Surrey Schools' Book of the Year

Surrey Schools Book of the Year

Surrey Schools' Book of the Year is a "student's choice" book award program of the Surrey School District. Grade 4-7 students can begin reading as early as September and should strive to read or listen to as many teacher-librarian nominated titles as they can. Students in participating schools receive a ballot from their school at the end of May. Surrey Libraries is a proud supporter of this highly successful and popular reader chosen award.
