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.

The library provides various services for students:

  1. Information on projects and school work via technology and books.
  2. Books for fun or recreational reading.
  3. Access to services such as: research using the Internet, e-mail, and opportunities to create electronic presentations. Student volunteers are welcome and should sign up with the teacher-librarian or the library technician.
