Burnaby Schools – Book Picks

“Ask me what I’m reading?”

Burnaby School District’s secondary school “Reads” programs are school-wide reading initiatives designed to inspire students and staff to read and talk about great books. If you have some reading time on your hands, consider grabbing one of the book picks recommended by our secondary school teacher-librarians and their school communities. There is a wide range of topics and genres to interest all types of readers. Be sure to click through to their websites (blue text) to learn more or visit Good Reads or a Burnaby Public Library near you.
