Reading Link Challenge
“Reading Link Challenge (RLC) is an award-winning public library/school partnership program that promotes the “sport of reading.” Librarians from FVRL work with school librarians and teachers to recruit teams of six students in grades 4 and 5. The program is run as a series of quiz/trivia challenges with questions based on six preselected books. All teams participate in one or more levels of challenge, with the winning teams advancing to higher levels of competition within the community.”
