One card, one million possibilities

Do you have a Library Card? If not, get one! Do you use your Library Card? If not, why not? Take advantage of all that libraries have to offer. Visit your local Public Library, and the many great libraries of your city, including Surrey Libraries, VPL and FVRL.  And as always, take advantage of everything that your School Library has to offer.  October is Canadian Library Month. The best way to celebrate is to use the library!

“Finding Your Way to Good Health and Well Being”

 

October is International School Library Month.  Join with schools in Canada and around the world as we take this month to learn about, and celebrate, the vital role that libraries play in education around the globe.

The theme of ISLM in 2020 is “Finding our Way to Good Health and Well Being.”

Welcome Back to Another School Year

We look forward to another year of supporting students and teachers as learning happens inside and outside the classroom. Be sure to check out all that we have to offer you online. We would also love to see you in person. We can help you to find books, magazines and other hands-on resources. Or you might be looking for a quiet place to read or study.

Space is limited, so please be sure to reserve your spot. Please make an appointment to visit by emailing your Teacher Librarian: sexton_colin@surreyschools.ca

You can now visit us live and person

Make an appointment to visit us at the School Library, live and in person.  The room is open on a limited basis so that you can:

  • Return borrowed books and other library materials
  • Borrow books and other library materials
  • Find a quiet space to read, study or do school work.

Contact the Teacher Librarian to make an appointment: sexton_colin@surreyschools.ca


Of course students and staff can always visit us online:

The Library is Still Open!

The physical space may be locked up for now, but your School Library is still open.  Please be sure to check out the various links to the virtual world of the library and your Teacher Librarian, Mr. Sexton.

As you make your adjustment to remote learning, remember that along with your classroom teachers, you have many other people and resources available to help you with this new experiment in education.

Contact Mr Sexton if you have any questions or need any help with navigating the virtual library.
