Welcome to Our Library
"Libraries stand for Freedom, privacy of thought, search and expression. They stand for private study in a social space. They are safe, places of sanctuary and they are trusted." - Roly Keating
Students are welcome to use the new charging station in the library for their phones and devices :)
Hours of Operation: 8:15-3:45 Mon.-Fri.
Students can access the library before school, at recesses and after school any time through the day as directed by their teacher.
Books are signed out for 2 weeks and can be renewed as needed. There is no limit (within reason) to the number of books that may be signed out, but students know that as soon as they have an overdue book, no more books may be borrowed until the overdue book is returned. If a student is chronic with overdues, their account may be limited to only one book at a time.
Fiction Books of every genre: Novels, Picture Books, Science Fiction, Humor, Historical Fiction, Easy Reading, Manga, Graphic Novels and much more!
Non-fiction encompasses not only curriculum related materials but also a large selection of special interest such as: Sports, Drawing, Cars, Hunting, Guinness World Records, Ghost Stories, Pets, Cooking, and so much more!
The Library is the Hub of the school! It houses 20 computers as well the library collection. Classes are often taught within the library and we have a smart board and a giant screen with projector to fit teacher's needs. On a cold winter's day, students are welcomed to the library for a video on the big screen. As dynamic as the library can be, it is also a respite for those looking for a quiet place to read, study, work on homework or simply collect their thoughts. It houses a cozy reading nook for story telling and library classes. Our castle decor reflects the team spirit of the Nelson Heights Knights!
We are all Knights on a Reading Quest!
