​Welcome to our school library

library.jpgWelcome to the Bibliothèque École John Henderson Middle School 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 and life-long learning.

Our Library is a busy place, where students and staff are following their curiosities to find, discuss and work with wonderful new factual information to inform their view of the world and fiction to take them to other worlds.

Mrs. L. Locken (library technician)
