Library

At St. George’s every grade, from Kindergarten to Grade 6, has an assigned library period, where students are greeted and treated weekly to read-alouds, from picture books & chapter book stories, to biographies, poetry, folktales, cookbooks, graphic novels, fabulous facts (non-fiction), and more, all available in both English and French.

Displays of fantastic books are a constant feature, inviting the children to discover what’s new – what’s out and about, and to choose whatever might catch their eye and tickle their fancy!

Our children enjoy the weekly pleasure of selecting books to read independently or share with family at home; of honing the skill of browsing and picking; of user responsibility; of getting immersed in stories and/or finding out all about something that fascinates – the magic of discovery; of reading; of libraries!

Our library: A place where computer skills are developed in collaboration with classroom projects; A forum for discussing good “digital citizenship” skills (how to behave on line, what to beware of and be aware); searching for reliable information and appropriate images; integrated tech-learning, in a state-of-the-art setting.

Our library: Where the children gather to meet “real” authors and illustrators! Where with wide eyes they listen to the perils and pleasures of creating children’s books!
