Students are invited to design a Library poster using this year's theme "Connecting Communities and Cultures."

Posters will be judged by a panel of "Library Experts."

The winning design will then serve as the Primary Library Logo for the year!

The poster may be designed using any medium, but cannot be larger in size than A3.

All entries must be turned into the Primary Library no later than Thursday, October 26th.

Congratulations to this week's (Oct.23-27) winners:

Use our wonderful online encyclopedias to answer questions about different cultures.

Starting Monday, October 2 a series of questions will be available in the Primary Library or posted right here on this webpage.

As a family, see if you can use Encyclopedia School or World Book Encyclopedia to answer the questions.

There will be 2 sets of questions available every Monday throughout October, one for grades EY-2 and one for grades 3-5.

You will have the entire week to answer the questions. Submit answers to the Primary Library each Friday.

All participants are eligible for drawings of prizes including new books!

Book Character Day!

As a culminating event and a way to celebrate our love of reading, all students are invited to come to school dressed as a Book Character
on Friday, October 27th. There will be a "parade of characters" during the morning recess. Make sure you stop by the Library
(with the book your character is from) for a photo and a treat!
