St. Bede Elementary School

Calgary, Alberta 20 / 300 Books Given

Principal Michelle Davies Two years ago our LC Library was used as a classroom. The book collection was, out of necessity, stored right next to the student work/lunch bins. Many items sustained water damage at that time. The majority of our collection is dated (15 - 35 years). It would be great if we could offer the students up-to-date resources to inspoire them to become specialists in a wide variety of subject areas.

Favourite books Our students enjoy the generalities titles such as Guinness World Records and anything to do with new technologies. Our most circulated dewey schedule is the 500 natural sciences area. Weather, space, dinosaurs, trees and animals capture their imaginations. Our titles are on average 20 years old in this area. I hope we will be able to upgrade these subjects for our students.
