Britannica

RCS recently subscribed to Britannica online. It's a great resource for differentiation, providing 3 different reading levels, multi-media formats and a "read to you" option. There is an Atlas feature, a County Comparison tool, and a Canada in Focus tool that provides a Canadian perspective. The accompanying image search provides access to thousands of copy right free images. The Educator section allow you to search for learning resources using provincial curricular standards.

RPL Collaboration

Over the last couple of years the RCS Librarians have had a chance to collaborate with the Richmond Public Library. Thanks to Laura Huber, our elementary librarian, teachers are now able to apply for a teacher library cards that increases the number of books teachers can check out to 60! The RPL also plans on offering text kits, similar to the ones the secondary library offers. Remember we can also use the RPLs Create and Learn platform to publish student's work to a larger communityl; see me if you would like a field trip set up to do this!

Spring Break Read Anyone?

The Basket o'Books for this month contains some adult fiction you may wish to enjoy during spring break. If you see a book you like, bring it to the library to check it out in your name.
