Primary School Library
The Queen’s College Primary School library exists as an integral part of the total school community to provide a wide variety of materials and resources necessary to accomplish the goals and objectives of the School curriculum, to foster a love of literature and reading as well as to ensure that students are effective users of ideas and information.
My mission for the Queen’s College Primary School Library is to work collaboratively with the staff to support the instructional goals of the school through acquiring and organizing the necessary materials, print and non print, in order to expand and enhance the learning environment for all students and teachers.
About Our Library
Our well- stocked library, with internet access to allow individual research, is the heart of our school and is supervised by a qualified teaching librarian who fosters and encourages a love of literature and reading. The library is available for use by all students during recess and lunch periods, and is also a home for the Early Morning Reading Rockets, Chess, and Crochet clubs. Students in all grades are encouraged to read widely from a list of books recommended by the librarian. Book swaps are arranged regularly so that students can exchange used books, and all students are invited to purchase a book for the school to celebrate their birthday. Parents also are invited to ‘Adopt a Book’ and contribute to our library.
Literacy Week is an annual event in the Primary School and is designed to foster in our students a love of books, reading and literacy. Our library is always buzzing with activities, and we are truly proud that that our Primary School library is a ‘Central Hub for Independent Learning and Discovery’, C.H.I.L.D
Our Library is a Leadership Zone
The library is a Leadership zone. We live the 7 habits here! This is our creed.
- I am responsible for selecting my own library book.
- The more I read, the more I will know. The more I know the smarter I grow.
- I pack my library book in my bag the night before Library day.
- I return my book on time so others can check it out.
- When it’s book share time, I listen without interrupting.
- I participate when we role play in a group.
- I relax at the library during play time by reading a book, listening
to a story or classical music.
- I read to and with my parents at home
