Nellie McClung SchoolCalgary, Alberta 63 / 400 Books Given
Principal Darren Dyck Nellie McClung has been around since 1969, and though we are fortunate to have a big and open Learning Commons, our books are very aged, dated, and falling apart. We have limited funds to keep our Learning Commons supplied with current and fresh literature, though we do our best to keep our young readers engaged. Our non-fiction books are in desperate need of being updated for class curriculum. We are also working tirelessly to update our guided reading books to assist our ESL and struggling readers. Lastly, our novel study sets are old and falling apart, and we would love to have the opportunity to offer students current books with current social themes for their book reports.

Books are the life blood of a school
As a child, I was lucky to have spent my entire summer holidays at our rustic cabin in the woods. With no electricity for 2 months, I developed a love of exploring the outdoors, played a lot of cards, did a lot of puzzles, and of course read a lot of books! Books allowed me to get lost in my ...
