Stratford, Ontario 412 / 237 Books Given

Principal Shona Gracey Many of the books in our school's collection are well-loved and tired-looking. Our goal is to replace and expand on favourite titles/series that are falling apart, add significantly to our WeNeedDiverseBooks and OwnVoices narratives, and infuse our collection with updated and captivating nonfiction and STEM resources to appeal to the widest range of student readers. We also need to bolster our collection of Early Reader chapter books and Middle Grade literature to better reflect our students of today.
