About us

In this 3rd edition of EMSB Reads, students from each grade will make class visits to the library to choose interesting sounding books. Librarians may help in the selection process by promoting the activity within their schools and by coordinating with teachers to schedule visits/circulate books.

Working individually students will read their books and reinterpret the covers. They will then design a new cover for their book with a written promotional summary of the book. Teachers/librarians/students will vote on the best re-designed cover. Winning covers will then be submitted for judging at the Educational and Technology Services (ETS) department to determine the winners. Winning teachers and students will receive small prizes of gift cards from participating bookstores.

The deadline to enter your class into the contest has been extended to FRIDAY, MARCH 3rd.

The deadline to submit an entry for your class is FRIDAY, MAY 5th.
