Rock City Elementary

Nanaimo, British Columbia 47 / 390 Books Given

Principal Eileen Jubinville Rock City is a large elementary school in a diverse area of Nanaimo. Our library is the hub of our school with many different activities and clubs being run from the space. Every student in our school has a class in the library each week and an open book exchange every day of the week which means students are accessing a lot of books through the library. Our circulation rates keep increasing, which is fantastic - however our collection is ageing and our library budget averages less than $2.75/student, which limits the amount of books we can purchase to replace the old books and to add new ones. We have recently removed many books that were more than ten years old, damaged, or had out-of-date information.

At Rock City, we are hoping for books that support our new readers as well as our experienced readers. We would like to add resources to support the new BC curriculum in the areas of Indigenous Education, Growth Mindset, Inquiry, and STEM. We also hope to grow our collection of upper intermediate novels, and to update out-of-date sections such as technology.

Thank you very much for supporting our library and our students!
