Learning in today’s dynamic world is very different from the kind of learning that took place prior to the embedding of computers in all aspects of our lives. Today, information is presented in multiple formats and has often neither been edited for truth or reliability. Many times, logical organization is often lacking.

The teacher-librarian and the library team work collaboratively with all staff to help students to become more effective, ethical and critical users/creators of information. And of the many diverse forms or sources in which it can be found.

Library Resources

The Library contains a wide range of resources, from books and magazines to dvds and audiobooks. Most of these resources can be borrowed by both staff and students.

Borrowing Resources
  • Non-fiction, graphic novels, illustrated books, and magazines will be issued for 1 week with 2 renewal options.
  • Fiction works will be issued for 3 weeks with 1 renewal option.
  • ‘Hold’ requests can be put on items out on loan.
  • Inter-library loans can be arranged.
  • Suggestions for new titles are always welcomed.
Overdue Items
  • There are no fines for overdue items, but at the end of each semester the full cost of the overdue item is charged to the student until the item is returned (in good condition).
  • However, all items should be returned as soon as possible; this gives others fair and timely access to them.
  • No other items will be signed out until the overdue item has been returned. Items can be worked with in the library during this time.
  • Notice must be given if an item is lost or damaged, and the cost of replacing them must be arranged with library staff.
