I am a first year teacher librarian at Wellington PS, who had the pleasure of meeting all the students these past two weeks. Every day, class after class entered our learning commons (library) excited and in awe as we talked about our collection which is made up of many childhood favourites (Mine - Where the Wild Things Are) to the new favourites Dog Man, Pete the Cat, and the Elephant and Piggie Series. The most heart breaking moment for me was having to tell a student that "unfortuanely we do not have that title or series". When asked "will we be getting them? I was unable to give my assurance that I would be able to purchase them. It is my hope that over the next 3 weeks, I can make parents, friends and family aware of our need and support our library. By purchasing new books for students from Kindergarten to Grade 8, we instilling the gift of reading for enjoyment. I'd like to thank everyone in advance for helping our young readers.
