Our Learning Commons (Library) is currently closed to student traffic, due to Covid-19 restrictions, however our Learning Commons Specialist (librarian) travels to classes sharing stories each week. Teachers are able to sign out books the students have chosen, which are shared only amongst their own classroom (they are not allowed to go home with students). Books are then returned to the Learning Commons and quarantined for a minimum of three days before being reshelved.
Students are encouraged to search our online Library Catalogue to select their own books for use in the classroom.
Our teachers have set up various ways to communicate book requests with the LCS who then pulls the books and delivers them to each classroom weekly. This system is working beautifully and students have learned quickly!
