Our library is open to all students looking for a  place to complete work or study.  We have 35 computers that are available as well as individual study carrels and tables suitable for groups of 1-6.  We also have a contained seminar room equipped with a projector, smart board and tables suitable for larger groups and a small seminar room for a group of up to 8 people.  We have an iPad lab for class library use and 20 iPad minis for classroom use. You can also borrow keyboards from the library to use with your ipad or phone. We also loan out adaptors for Apple products to connect with ipads and the projectors.  New this year: Makers Space with 3D printer, button maker and more! This space is an after school drop in with students sharing and learning skills with each other. We have high tech and craft workshops ongoing. Come check this new club out!

Our library is a very busy and well used space! All areas of the library are bookable spaces and are often reserved by teachers for their classes.  Students on spare are welcome to work in the library.

Books . . . .we have lots of them!  Reference, non-fiction, fiction, manga, graphic novels, magazines and newspapers. We also have an online Virtual Library with reference material. The Virtual Library can be accessed in the library course in The HUB. Most books can be checked out for a two week period with the exception of our reference titles which can  only be signed out on an overnight basis.

We offer books clubs, author visits, contests, Makers Space workshops and more.  Come see what’s happening at your library!
