Goals of the Library:
Teach students to be successful users of information; encourage students to discover and read a variety of literature; and, provide students, staff, and school families with resources to facilitate and enhance learning.
Teach the following goals of Critical and Creative Thinking:
To contribute to development of "strong sense" critical and creative thinkers
To develop an understanding of how knowledge is created, evaluated, refined and changed within subject areas
To promote both intuitive, imaginative thought and the ability to evaluate ideas, processes, experiences and objects in meaningful contexts
To enable students to think for themselves, to recognize the limits of individual reflection and the need to contribute to and build upon mutual understandings (Sask. Ed., 199
Policies of the Library:
In addition to a love of reading, we hope to promote individual responsibility through the check-out of books and library resources. The maximum number of items borrowed at one time is dictated by the grade level.
This is to ensure continuous circulation of materials to the greatest number of users.
Books and materials may be returned prior to library class for additional check out.
The number of items allowable to check out at one time is:
Kindergarten: One item
First Grade & Second Grade: Two items
Third Grade - Fifth Grade: Three items
Students may be allowed to check out additional items as required by their teacher, or by the approval of the Librarian.
