Welcome to our school library

Welcome to the library and to our program of information literacy. We believe that every student should have the skills necessary to navigate in today's information-rich society. Determining information needs, recognizing and selecting appropriate resources - whether print or online and managing the information are fundamental skills needed for successful academic research.

Program Description

Book selection is held once during the six-day cycle. We have co-operative inquiry-based learning where the classroom teacher and the teacher-librarian plan and institute projects with the students from grades 1 – 5. The projects are curriculum-based and help to reinforce writing, thinking and research skills while using the library and technology as resources.
