Our library is well stocked with a variety of picture story books, reference books, novels to suit all reading level. There is a dedicated library budget and the school regularly purchases new titles. As an annual event the school participates in a book fair enabling families to purchase popular titles; promoting and encouraging reading for pleasure. The school uses the Lexile reading program for students in Grades 3-6 and they have the opportunity to change books each morning before school. A variety of teachers’ resources including big books for sharing are also available in the library for use. All classes have scheduled weekly library sessions with their classroom teacher providing opportunity for students to borrow books and allowing time to read for pleasure.
Each year the students are encouraged to participate in The Premiers’ Reading Challenge. This allows the students to challenge themselves to read a set number of books over a six month period. The students that participate and finish The Challenge receive a certificate of completion from the Premier.
