LIBRARY RESOURCE CENTRE

The spacious, light-filled library is a vital part of Heritage Park Middle.

Open daily from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, students are welcome to come in and read, check out books, study, research or complete homework.

During the lunch break, the library has become a vibrant meeting place where young people can play video or board games, engage in gentle conversation or take advantage of peer tutoring opportunities. Throughout the day, during class time, the library is used by classes for research projects and literature circles.

The library collection has been developed to support the curriculum. In addition to the book collection, the library has a number of e-books that are part of a virtual reference library that students can access from home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The library book blog,

bookbuzzehpms.blogspot.ca, contains all of the necessary links to our on-line catalogue, Alexandria; E-Library; or the ERAC database.

In today’s world of texts and tweets, of i-phones and i-pads, of video games and Netflix, it may seem unlikely that the old-fashioned book would be enjoying a renaissance with young people but this is certainly evident in the Heritage Park library. In unprecedented numbers, publishers are producing books of every genre specifically written for the young adult reader and our students are responding with tremendous enthusiasm. Even reluctant readers are joining in on the fun by checking out dozens of graphic novels and manga every week. In an effort to capitalize on the excitement, the library’s rapidly growing fiction collection is current and diverse, appealing to students from grades seven to twelve.

For more information about the Heritage Park library, simply visit BookBuzz, the library blog, at the web address bookbuzzehpms.blogspot.ca. There you will find out about new books coming into the library, special events and contests, current trends in YA literature and more.
