Welcome to Westview 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 teacher collaborates with classroom teachers to plan, teach and assess units of study according to the curriculum for their grades. Students are taught how to use technology in various ways to gather information that answers their inquiry and also to present their findings. All classes, grades 1-5 complete two or three projects a year. Information literacy skills are taught while they research their topics. Both the information literacy skills and the technology skills are essential life skills for a successful future.
