Why we have McDonald's/Chapters night:

  1. Ardagh's library gets a $ portion of the purchases you make.
  2. This $ is used for kids to pick the books they want for our library. This takes place in December, when I (Mr. Greg Harris, Teacher Librarian) take some students to Chapters.
  3. Our library gets books that don't sit on the shelves - they get read.
  4. Kids read more of what they want to read - they learn to read better.
  5. For October 2017, we will get a giftcard for $535. After our discount, this will turn into nearly $700 in books. We are so thankful.

Library Best Practices:

Students and staff often ask me (Mr. Greg Harris, Teacher Librarian) to buy specific books for our library. I do that regularly. This helps our library get books kids want to read and books that teachers use to further student learning.

Our students range from 3 to 14 years old. Sometimes students pick a book not intended or suitable for them. Please let me know. A favourite book for one 14 year old may not be approrpiate to another 14 year old. All students discuss with me and their classroom teacher how to handle books that are scary, edgy or inappropriate for them. Learning to self censor is vital. Strategies include stop reading, continue reading to find out what the author fully intended, discuss with parents, teachers, and peers.

Please contact Mr. Greg Harris, Teacher Librarian if you have any questions or concerns or ideas to improve our school library.  gharris@scdsb.on.ca
