This fall, two community schools will have merged as one! We have many avid readers, but our collection is fairly old, and students are always looking for new material to devour. Some students do not have access to a home-library, or a diverse genre. Our library learning commons is our students' most accessible place to read, research, and learn. As the Teacher-Librarian, it would be wonderful to see our students have access to new material. A rich, diverse selection of reading material will provide ALL our students an opportunity to find a favourite book to read, or support their academic achievements.

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

"A long, long, time ago in small village in London Ontario lived a little, old elementary school. My brother, sister and I spent many years there but the event that I remember most was the year that the roof finally gave in and demolished our school library. No students or teachers were injured but this left us all with nowhere to escape into our stories, socialize, study or discover new books.
The next part of my story is what makes this my favorite memory from my elementary school days. Our school community, surrounding neighborhoods, friends and families all pulled together to build a new library.
The end result was a big, beautiful, inspiring space filled with more books than you could read (sounds like Indigo, right?). The input and hard work by the students gave us a sense of ownership and pride.
It was the first and best example of community support I experienced, impacting my life to this day.

"Every school library should have the books "Everyday Angel". There are three in the series. The stories are all about an Angel that wants to get her wings. To do that, she must help three different girls. The books deal with issues that would matter to girls in the pre-teen stage. One talks about bullying, another talks about having a voice and the third is about doing what makes you happy.

I watched my daughter pour through these books when they released in the store and she was telling all of her friends about them. What was best was the conversation we had together when discussing these girls and how they dealt with their problems and how each girl relates to my daughter. They made her think. They made her new aware of a bigger world.

Who is your favourite character from a children's book and why?

"My favourite character from my childhood is Laura Ingalls. I absolutely loved listening to the simple ways in which she and her sisters had fun around the farm and at school. My background is Amish and I found that many of the traditions that are carried out by the Ingalls family followed along those lines. Also, I have auburn hair and freckles so many people said that I looked and acted like Laura Ingalls. She continues to be my favourite character to this day. I even bought my daughter all of the Laura Ingalls books to enjoy for herself."
