We need an updated collection of high interest resources (books, magazines) to sustain the love of reading and engage students in our new Learning Commons, which will invite the students to feel a sense of community through reading. New, high interest resources will also help us to promote "Ride to Read" along with stationary bikes that were generously donated to our library. We would also like to add more books focussing on our Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations and Foucs on Faith Themes (including inclusivity, diversity, God's creations etc.,) There are exciting things happening in our library and updating our books will help to make it all a great success!

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

"My parents were immigrants and didn't have a lot of money. They also didn't speak English when I was younger and when I first started school, I did not speak English. There was no ESL back in those days. As much as my parents encouraged reading and education, and they very much did, they would not have actually bought me any books, although they were more than happy to drive me to the local library on a regular basis. I loved to read as a child and that passion was stimulated by my elementary school. I relied heavily on the books in the school library to fuel that passion.

While bookstores may be a much bigger business these days, there are still many families in our communities who can't afford to purchase books for their children. Besides, don't we want our children to have limitless reading opportunities? This can only be possible by having libraries that are overflowing with resources, not working on a slim budget. Please support this campaign so that all students in our communities have the resources available to develop a passion for reading!! "
