The Library & Movie Editing

Image via tips.epsb.ca
The library is currently being used by classrooms for movie editing. Because of this it is likely to be closed for class library visits and during lunchtimes for the next few weeks. If you'd like to borrow a book(s) during this time leave a note on my desk, or ask your teacher to give it to me, and I'll do my best to get it to you.

Book Fair 2015 - Update 2


St Brendan's Book Fair is over again for another year. A BIG Thank You to everyone who came along and supported our major library "fundraiser".  Sales this year earned us 25 free new books for our library collection. A BIG Thank you also to the families who purchased a "Red Dot" book for donation to the library - keep a look out for them in the library in the next few weeks, they'll all have special Book Fair 2015 Donation book plates inside!

For those waiting on book orders from the Scholastic Book Fair warehouse, these should be on their way home with you after school by the end of the week.

Because so many were away from school last week, due to illness, we have decided to open the Book Fair for one last afternoon. So.....if you were unable to make it along to Book Fair last week there's still time, come along after school TODAY.
