The library continues to thrive, and now has a different layout: bookshelves have been moved to accommodate a “kid magnet” reading corner floor mat for Grades K to 2. Librarian Dorn Willock, under the supervision of Principal Temika Christian, is doing a great job, and the children are directly benefitting. Hands has been assisting this school since 2011-2012, thanks in large part to the Mill Reef Fund, and the library has a generous collection of books. Just a gap-filing shipment is needed.

New library underway! Cull, clean, create a library. The books in the book cupboard are almost all old and uninviting—time to go (book sale, giveaway, or disposal). Principal Nigel De Gale is very excited at the prospect of new books and a lending library for his school. Literacy initiatives at the school include reading competitions, reading carnivals, and poetry and essay-writing competitions. Now what they need are new books to fuel the fire.
