Our Lady of Mount Carmel School

Ottawa, Ontario 275 / 320 Books Given

Principal Debbie Lloyd OLMC is grateful for the opportunity to participate again this year! Our needs have gone up in the last year. We have seen an increase in ELL (English language learners) coming into the school which brings more need for hi/low books. Many of the kids at this school love to come and get books but it is frustrating when the books your peers take are too difficult for you. No Junior student wants to take out a primary book so Hi interest/ Low word frequency books are an ideal solution.

Favourite books Graphic Novels - Dogman, Big Nate, Plants Vs ZOmbies, Raina Telgemeier
SuperHeros and ninjas
Cookbooks and drawing books
fairies, princesses and mermaids
