We are very lucky here at Florence Meares Public School to have an awesome Public Library in Burlington. They put on many great events and programs that directly benefit our school community. Here are a few programs that you might want to check out.

Check out the 7Up Book Club happening on Thursdays.
Looking to work on those communication skills? Call BPL today to register.

Halloween is just around the corner!! Get spooked @ Tansley Wooods.

This might be of interest to some of our recent FM Grads.

We have had an exciting start to the 2010/2011 school year. After a hot, sunny summer, it's been great to see smiling faces and hear about summer adventures.

All classes in the school have had an opportunity to visit the Library and sign out a book. Grades 1-4 have weekly scheduled visits to the library, while Grade 5 - 6 are invited to the Library during periods 1,2 and 1st nutrition break. Thank you to our volunteers who assist in keeping the books flowing smoothly in and out of the Library. You are a tremendous help!!

Hosting a game show has always been a bit of a dream of mine, I admit. This year my dream came true as I hosted "Library Jeopardy" with our Junior and Intermediate students. While some teams raked in the $$$$, it was clear we were all winners as we discovered amazing new things about our Library. Who knew our Library catalogue has a link to Award Winners. You can check it out here I'm for sure going to use the Award Winners page next time I'm stuck for a book to read.

I hope everyone has had a great start to the year and we'll see you all in the Library real soon:-)
