St. Gregory The Great Catholic School

Blackfalds, Alberta 120 / 530 Books Given

Principal Angela Ward (Vice Principal) St. Gregory the Great Catholic School is a new Pre-K to grade 9 school that opened in Blackfalds, Alberta on August 31, 2017. As you can see by the wide grade range, we are striving to provide plenty of books for kids of all ages, levels and interests. The bulk of our collection has been through donations from the weeded collections in our division schools. We are in our second running school year and already are over capacity! With a limited budget but growing student population, we are in constant need of books to support our students with their learning. We are excited to partner with Chapters/Indigo to promote the love of reading and increase the books in our library space!

Favourite books Our students love graphic novels! Our top graphic novels include anything by Raina Telgemeier, Jennifer L. Holm and the Amulet series. The next most circulated books from last year are Captain Underpants, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dog Man and anything Minecraft related!
