LIBRARY RESOURCE CENTRE
The spacious, light-filled library is a vital part of Heritage Park Middle School.
Open daily from 7:30 am to 3:30 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.
In today’s world of texts and tweets, of cell phones and tablets, 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 middle school and 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.
The library collection has been developed to support the curriculum and to provide students with exciting, diverse fiction in a multitude of genres Hundreds of new books are added each year.. To see what is available, just click on the link below to access Destiny, our library catalogue.
