The Library

Welcome to our Lansdowne Library!

We have a wonderful collection of French and English books, magazines and encyclopaedias. Our goal is to help students become skilled users of ideas and information by providing a quality library program that effectively integrates our curricular, technology and literacy goals.

 A Teacher Librarian is available from Tuesday to Friday to assist students with locating books for reading enjoyment and for interacting with information for research. Students also learn about organizing information; interpreting and analyzing the information; and sharing and presenting the information with others.

The loan period is 2 weeks for most books and 1 week for magazines.
