We need to update our school and class libraries in order to provide more recent books to our students.We hold an annual scholastic book fair in order to help offset costs. Many teachers purchase books with their own money or look to garage sales and donations in order to keep up to date. We find that being in rural Manitoba, we do not have the access to new books that we would like. For that reason, we decided to include a field trip to the Chapters store at Polo Park last year. The students loved it! Some of the had never been to a big book store before and were amazed! We have a school wide literacy plan that has been tremendously beneficial to our students. For Christmas gift exchange students bought books for each other. We have put a love of reading at the forefront of our school program.

"My dream library has 3 stories. On the first story the whole room is filled with mystery and adventure books. On the second story, the room is filled with animal books and on the last story it has romance (for older people). Each story has comfy couches, foam mats, comfy chairs, tables, plants and a snack bar and massaging chairs. Many people prefer to be comfortable when reading!
On the animal story level there is a water life section that surrounds the readers with fish tanks, and not just gold fish! "

" My dream library
My dream library would have fairytale books, Geronimo Stilton books and Mandie books for people that like mysteries. My dream library would have a popcorn maker so then you could take popcorn and read books but they would only be allowed one bag at a time so that they don't get butter all over the books. My dream library would have adventure and romance. Every month there would be a theme to dress up like something, so say one month we would dress like pirates, the next we would dress like princesses; well the girls would the boys would dress like princes but you don't have to dress up if you don't want to. That's how my dream library would look like. The end.

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

"One of my most favorite memories of our school library is when our Librarian, Mrs. Hulley completely transformed our library into a wildlife exhibit. The theme was "WILD ABOUT READING" and it was such an awesome experience for our students. The community supported this idea by donating many unique stuffed mounts of animals such as deer, black bear, elk, fish and moose. In addition, we had a tree stand, tree stump chairs, antlers and animal calls throughout the day to give our students the full experience and make every effort to get "Wild About Reading".

It is these types of events that our school and library make to encourage kids to visit the library and try to find the "one book" and get hooked on reading.

"One day I was in this boring old library but then everything changed.
5 years later I was the librarian of that same old library but I changed it completely.
It was awesome there were disco balls and 2 TVS. There was one on my desk but only the staff and I could watch it. It had all the channels we wanted including… TSN, YTV and sports net. The other TV had discovery channel, and an audio channel and a science channel. This TV was for the students.

There was music .

Peaceful reading music from 9:00 am – 3:15 pm.
And loud country from 3:30 pm -7:30 am.

It was 9:00 , time to start a long work day.

The first class came in and then they went, and so on, and so on. A day in my dream library was over.

Why are you supporting this school and their library?

"As a librarian in our school I have the privilege to share the experience of reading from a variety of books that flourish information and transfer knowledge to students in very different ways.
Books are diverse in imagination, drama, cultures, specific topics, world issues, education and so much more that awaken the universe of reading.
To support literacy in a positive environment by encouraging unique surroundings and an abundant supply of books is my goal each year to keep students interactive in the library as a heart of our school."

In the library there would be massaging chairs, and comfy cushions because people like to be comfy when they read. There is a flat screen TV that we can watch audio books. We will have book fairs and there will also be a Starbucks and Tim Horton's.
