What does your dream library look like?

"My dream library might physically look like a combination of the Rose Room at NYC Public Library, the Library at the Canadian Parliament, the "old"reading room at the British Museum and the Library at Trinity College Dublin. However, the real dream library for me is a library where I can find books which excite, engage or amuse me - and that does not mean you have to invest heavily in fancy wooden panels and carving; nor in plush seats and pretty lamps - however pleasing to the eye and to the bottom those are. What you have to invest in is books. ALL books - even those I might roll my eyes at or never read myself. I don't expect you to judge me if I choose to read a famous Canadian author, or a not so famous Scottish author, or a translated version of a Dutch or Polish writer, or a cheap thriller. sometimes known as a beach read. And I won't judge you if you read something that I never would ! Give me books - and lots of them and let me choose what I want to read today. "

Who is your favourite character from a children's book and why?

"One of my favorite characters ever is March McQuin from LOOT by Jude Watson. The way he grew up, with a world famous thief as a dad and no mother, is really interesting. Throughout the book, he's shown to be considerate to most people that he knows, not something I would expect from someone who grew up like him. He helps his other friends when they've hit a roadblock, which I find great. And I really enjoyed the way he described meeting his long-lost twin sister, Jules. He said it was like Jules had filled the empty space once filled by his mother. When I was at my school's book fair, I saw the sequel book, STING, that I never knew had come out, and I was absolutely ecstatic to read more about March. LOOT and STING are definitely two of my favorite books of all time.

"A library is like a vault of treasure that contains something for everyone. Whether you want to enjoy a story with characters who are similar to you and your friends, or dive into a place and time fantastical and foreign, read about what's happening in the present, or learn about science, history or sports, all can be found within.

"A library is like a vault of treasure that contains something for everyone. Whether you want to enjoy a story with characters who are similar to you and your friends, or dive into a place and time fantastical and foreign, read about what's happening in the present, or learn about science, history or sports, all can be found within. The key is literacy - the ability to read and write, and the more we read the better we are able to unlock the library's treasures and the richer we will all be for the effort. "

"I attended Emily Carr Middle School myself over 15 years ago, and I remember hours spent in their library. I struggled with French reading so I remember digging around to find French books that I'd previously read in English. I found that helped my reading comprehension, since I already knew the stories. The words made more sense. Since then, I went on to get my university degree in French to English translation. Had I not worked so hard at ECMS to master my French reading, I may not have gone down the career path that I love so much today! Happy to support the ECMS library so that others (maybe one day my own son) can find something they love from those books, too. "

You can listen and let the imagination flow freely. I try to put new and interesting books into the hands of my students, to inspire them to break out of their comfort zone and read something different. Help me to inspire the younger generation of readers! "

What is your favourite memory from your elementary school library and why?

"I was always excited to go to the library during school. There was always fierce competition to get to the best books first. Not many households had good computers or fast internet when I was young so the library is where I learned most things. There were things I loved learning about in class like the history of Egypt, medieval times, and art. I wanted to know more and the library would be there for me. I remember racing to the art section to take out books on drawing techniques. One of my favorite books was on how to draw all types of dogs step by step which I checked out over and over. I remember always feeling happy once I got my hands on it thinking about all the fun I'd have. "
