Principal Chris Wejr We are an inner city school of readers who read so much our books are wearing out. Or it could be that our books are a bit on the old side and need replacing. We serve a wide variety of students from different socio-economic backgrounds. Our library has seen lots of change in past years. Now that we have a full time Learning Commons teacher, we need to update our library collection so it contains books that our students will be interested in reading. We have a dream of creating a library collection where our shelves are half empty because the students are busy reading them.

Reading is important to me because it helps me learn new things I didn't know. When I read a story it makes me wonder what is coming next and when I finish a good book, I want to read it again. When I read the book Wonder, I cried, laughed and was really surprised. That is why reading is ...
I wasn’t a reader as a child. When I was in my mid 20’s, a close friend bragged about Anne Shirley and said I should read Anne of Green Gables. I’m glad she did. I so admired the character of Anne Shirley and knew that her creative mind and generous heart, were an great example of how to build ...
