About the Library
Librarian: Mrs. Woodcock
Library Hours: Monday-Friday (Mrs. Woodcock is available on Wednesdays and Fridays)
Regularly-scheduled library and computer class visits are enhanced by the librarian's knowledge of research and technology lessons developed in consultation with teachers. She fosters a love of reading through story-telling and book discussions with classes, as well as through book displays in the library. These activities keep the students busy and interested in the contents of their school library!
Our library boasts a collection of approximately 6,000 items, including fiction, non-fiction, picture books, reference materials and magazines. In addition to these print resources, students also have access to a number of online databases for research and browsing, including PebbleGo, Britannica School and Gale Research in Context. Finally, all of our students have access to the Board's digital library, where they can access eBooks through OverDrive.
To provide access to a variety of informational resources to support the curriculum, foster a love for reading, and ensure the school community is effective users of information for learning and for leisure.
