Just in time for the holidays, all next week, December 8-12, bring in your gently used books.  For every book you bring in you will receive 1 ticket.  The following week, December 15-19, come back with your tickets and "shop" for books new to you!  1 Book = 1 ticket

We are looking for fiction, non-fiction, children's books in good condition -anything you think someone else would want to read.


See us in the Library LC

On November 11, bring your change (and bills, too!) to leave in Garth's Garden.  Following each assembly, students will exiting past Garth's Garden.  Leave your poppy to make the garden grow, and toss in your donation.  All money goes toward a Juno Beach Centre Memorial Brick, a campaign begun by Garth Webb himself!

Want new books? Here's how YOU can help!

Every month in the Library LC, you will see flyers for the Scholastic TRC book orders.  Remember those from back in the day?  Well, now they have the Teen Readers Club.  The books are current, and the prices are better than the bookstore.

Even better, a portion of every dollar spent comes back to our Library LC in the form of coupons to spend on books from Scholastic.

How to order?

1. Come to the library and get a flyer to do your SHOPPING!
2. Bring your order form and a cheque made out to Scholastic Canada Ltd. (cheques only, please!)
3. Books typically arrive 5-7 days after they are ordered

Questions?  See Mrs. R or Mrs. H

Meet the Staff....Get a book!

Hopefully by now, all our new students have found their way to the Library LC.  Mrs. Herchell is our Library Technician, and she can help you find any book we have on our shelves -plus, she can provide excellent real-life advice too!

Mrs. Rogers (seen below) can help you with anything academic, what to read, or any general questions!

P.S. You can take out a book right now, even if you don't have a student card!  Just bring in your timetable, and you are all set!
