Let's pick up where we left off!!
Our students ABSOLUTELY LOVE NEW BOOKS! In an age where screen time seems to be on the increase, our students still cannot get enough books, which is a great problem to have! As Dr. Seuss says, "The more you read, the more you know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go!" and we want our students to reach those heights and journey to greater successes, whether it be in their futures on in the stretches of their imaginations! Over the past two years, the St. Bernard Community and friends of St. Bernard have supported this amazing "book boost" for our almost 700 students. Your contribution will definitely be put to great use--our library books do not collect dust--and that is for certain. Our students LOVE their BOOKS!!! Please support and help our community nurture our reading community of the St. Bernard Bears. :)
We at St. Bernard cannot thank you enough for your contribution. We could not do it without the support and generosity from our surrounding communities!
On behalf of the St. Bernard community, THANK YOU!

Thanks to a very generous pledge of $1400 from the people at TD Bank, matched to the tune of $700 from Indigo, our school has now nearly tripled our $1000 goal! There is only one week left, so we'll be striving even higher, beyond $3000! Go Bears!
Behold some of our "Draw Your Dream Library Contest" entries. Lots of great ideas for dream libraries. Everything from "make your own book" stations to snack bars to windows! Thanks to everyone who entered, and I'll be announcing the results on Monday.

The library at St. Bernard's is a wonderful place, filled with many great texts. It would be wonderful to be able to purchase more culturally diverse books for the library.

Books are a gateway to opportunity. Reading is the path well chosen. Joy of reading is taking a fun filled journey. Every child deserves to have that experience. St Bernard is a fine school with many economic challenges, by supporting the school I feel that the students will have a chance to ...
Reading is a necessity of life! Everything online and offline is written. And you learn so much about the world around you from reading. You can come to know and appreciate other people's perspectives and worldviews. Reading is not only educational and informative, but fun. I enjoy escaping ...
Reading is like a superpower! Once you can read the possibilities are endless and nothing can stop you from rising up and doing great things !
There isn't merely one person who helped develop my love of reading. I had grandparents who supplied me with books to read from an early age: my bedroom had a shelf full of Spencer Johnson's ValueTales (sadly, I don't think they're in print anymore.) I had parents who read to me, even when I ...
