Book Lists

A Guide to the BC SRC Booklists
Each year one of our Content Creators creates an annotated booklist for each of the 7 weekly themes. Using award lists and peer suggestions to choose the best available titles, they ensure these titles are in print, and published within the last 5 years (or, if a “classic” with a strong and explicit reason for selection indicated.) These lists are then sent to ULS to be made available for purchase by libraries, and to *NNELS and CELA for possible recording as audio books. In order to make these lists as useful as possible, they are further annotated with a series of icons (please see chart below). These icons also appear at the top of each weekly booklist for handy reference. A headphone icon makes it easy for anyone wishing to listen to their summer reading. In addition, our partners at ABPBC have provided us with theme-related titles from their collections to add to our lists. These are indicated by the book icon “Partner Recommendations”. These are indicated by the book icon “Partner Recommendations”.
