Our Spring Scholastic Book Fair is coming soon! Please Save the Dates!

March 20th and 21st will bring the always exciting Spring Book Fair to St. Martin's library! There will be no regular library classes this week, instead classes will visit the fair during the day on Tuesday and Wednesday where they can enter our poster draw. Also we will be open for family shopping until 8:30 Wednesday evening where students can enter our shared classroom/family book draw and our estimation draws! Watch for the book fair sample flyer to come home with your child the week of March 12th. Hosting the Scholastic Book Fair is our best fundraiser for getting new books into our library so our students can enrich their minds! Please plan to attend!

Never lose a book, never have an overdue book or a damaged book again! Great for students who read through their library books quickly and need a replacement before the library is open again! 

Big news for Read in Week 2017!

Read in week for 2017 was Oct 2-6. On Oct 4 we had the pleasure of hosting an incredible Alberta author, Sigmund Brouwer! His hour long, high energy performance always sparks reading and writing motivation in all of our students! Since his visit, Sigmund books have been flying off the library shelves!
