Welcome back to another school year at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary. Here in the School Library we look forward to serving you for another year. We are here for all of you, staff and students, boys and girls, grade 8 to 12. Come down to visit us in person, and visit us online. Let us know how we can help support your learning, both in and out of the classroom.
As October draws to a close, so does International School Library Month and Canadian Library Month. We hope you learned something about the vital role that libraries play in our country, and that school libraries play in education around the globe. Most importantly, we hope you were able to celebrate the wonderful gift of libraries by visiting some, including your local public library, and especially, your school library.
Come down to see us in person, or visit online– even though October is ending, you can make use of your school library all year long.
Today you have been challenged by the BCTF and BCTLA to Drop Everything and Read! The DEAR Challenge is issued every year for BC School Library Day, in conjunction with Canadian Library Month and International School Library Month.
Every person in British Columbia, including every student and every teacher, is challenged to drop everything else and read a book. Read for pleasure. Read for entertainment. Read for knowledge. Read for escape. Read for experiencing other places, other times, other lives. Read for the joy of it.
In keeping with the continuing celebration of all things library during International School Library Month and Canadian Library Month, here are some links to some interesting library themed content. Enjoy!
Ziggy Marley was born on this day in 1968. One of the children of reggae legend Bob Marley, Ziggy would go on to become a famous musician in his own right. Many might disagree, but some feel his best work was “Believe in Yourself.”
“Believe in Yourself” is the theme song for “Arthur” the beloved animated program based on the books by Marc Brown.
