Williams Lake Library Red Cedar Reading Group helps to select children's authors for special awards.

The Williams Lake Library’s Red Cedar Reading Group met last Thursday to discuss books and participate in activities related to the books they read. Each year books by Canadian authors are nominated for the Red Cedar Book Award, British Columbia’s Young Reader’s Choice Award.

The Cariboo Regional District Library’s Williams Lake Branch annually recruits young readers for the program. Members read as many of the nominated books as they can, then vote for which ones they prefer.

After votes from Red Cedar groups around the province are counted, two titles; one fiction and one non-fiction, will be recognized as the best Canadian books of the year for young readers.
