This week at the School Library


International Games Month @ Your Library takes top billing this week as the School Library hosts over 25 different classes for a celebration of games! Board games, tabletop games, card games, party games and all sorts of games will be happening Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.



On Wednesday the School Library also hosts the district DELF exam for French language students. As such we will be closed to all drop-in students for the entire day on Wednesday.

Games Week was Good*

International Games Week @ Your Library was back at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary after a two year hiatus. While Covid protocols forced us to hold a smaller event than in past years, it was still so very wonderful to bring students into the library to celebrate the fun and educational power of games. Thanks to all the teachers who brought their classes, and to all the student who participated with joy!

*Good OR sick OR groovy OR bussin’ OR rad OR lit OR awesome OR wicked OR choice OR brilliant OR fye OR gnarly OR capital OR fire OR neat OR magic OR cool OR jolly good OR da bomb OR swell OR whatever the latest word for good is. Take your pick.

Games Week

International Games Week @ Your Library is back at the LT School Library. “International Games Week is an initiative run by volunteers from around the world to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.” (games.ala.org) Join us as we celebrate the power of games with thousands of people in thousands of libraries all over the world.

International Games Week @ Your Library



IGW@YL is back! Sadly, our event will be smaller than in the past, as the Covid situation requires us to diligently put safety measures into place. Even so, after a long hiatus, we are just happy to be back and are looking forward to hosting Interational Games Week @ Your Library for 2021!

Stay posted for more information coming soon.
