Library Resource Centre
A warm library welcome to all students who are new to Birchwood and also to
returning students. Our school library offers resources in English and French
with a wide variety of reading material in both the fiction and non-fiction
sections. We have available for student use: seven computers, a number of CDs,
and magazines. The library provides an area for students at lunch to socialize
quietly, to play chess or checkers, and to read. Most days the library is open
until 4:00 p.m. for students who wish to work on homework. Students do not
require a library card to borrow material from the school library.
Birchwood School Library database is available online at
http://320.schoollibrary.edu.pe.ca/. Imagine, you are now able to search our
library in the comfort of your own home to see if the school library has the
book you are looking for and whether or not it is available. Are you working on
a research project or interested in a particular author or subject? You can
search at home and you'll know just where to find the books you need when you
visit the Birchwood Library Resource Centre.
Book Orders Help Our Library
Each month Scholastic book order forms are distributed to students. Each
purchase adds up to a certain amount of free material for the school library
which is very much appreciated.
Parents who would like to volunteer in the school library are asked to
contact Ms.Poirier at 368-6870.
Author Maggie de Vries Presents...
All grade 7 Birchwood students attended a presentation by Canadian author
Maggie DeVries at the Charlottetown Public Library in celebration of 2001
Canadian Children's Book Week. Ms. de Vries shared many of her published works
and the tips and hints about the writing and publishing process. Thank you to
Ms. Poirier for organizing this event for students.
