Welcome to Our School Library
Welcome to the library and to our program of information literacy. We believe 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.

Hours of operation: 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. from Monday to Friday
Books are borrowed on a six-day cycle basis.
Kindergarten students are allowed one book, Grades 1 and
2 students are allowed two books, and Grades 3 to 5 students are allowed three books.
All students are reminded of their responsibility to return borrowed
materials in good condition on their library day. Replacement costs for damaged
books will be issued throughout the year, when the situation arises. During June
inventory, students with books that are still outstanding or lost will then
receive a letter requesting replacement costs. We appreciate the support of
parents in reminding their children to return library books on time.
The library is a focal point in the school. It is the information centre
where all the resources, print and electronic, are available to students, staff,
and the community. Students at the primary levels enjoy story time while they
learn about books, authors, illustrators, and libraries. All classrooms have the
opportunity to co-operatively plan, teach, and evaluate research units with the
teacher librarian. These curriculum-based projects are taught according to the
inquiry-based learning model described by Manitoba
Education and Early Childhood Learning.
