Our Library collection is well used our books are well loved. The cost of purchasing new books added to the cost of repairing and replacing damaged and "well loved" books is growing at a rate that is difficult for us to keep up to. We are trying to expand our collections to meet the demands of our growing student ppulation. We would like to focus on increasing the number of selections for students in the following sections: Early Chapter books, Young Adult, Graphic Novels and French Fiction. These are areas that are in great demand for our avid readers.

I feel this is why today I have a love of books (good children's books are my favourite) , a love reading and learning. We need libraries!!! And librarians!!!"

"I am a huge Robert Munsch fan!!! I always read his stories to my children when they were little. My favourite memory was bringing my kids to Georgian College to meet him. He signed each a book for them and had their picture taken with him. It was a wonderful moment for me!"

"Two of my favourite book charactors are Wilbur and Charlotte from "Charlotte's Web". They develop a wonderful friendship even though they are different animals with different likes and dislikes. Proving that it is possible to get along and become fantastic friends even with majoy differences. "

"As a teacher for over 20 years (yikes!) I have read a lot of books to students, but three stand out as my favourites and should be in every school and town library.
The first is a favourite from childhood that I have read to many classes: "Anne Of Green Gables". The language, the history, and the humour of Anne and her scrapes, makes it a book that every Canadian child should read.
As a teacher every so often you have a bad day, a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day! And that means you should take a break and read your class "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good Very Bad Day". Always good for a laugh and it always puts a smile on my face.
My last pick is a new book. Every library needs something new to add to the shelves and my new favourite, that I am currently reading to my class, is "Pennyroyal Academy". A tale that takes our idea of what a princess is and turns it on its ear. A great read for girls and boys with books 2 and 3 to come.
Only 3 of many personal favourites."
