Limehouse Library Home

The Primary Students of L.P.S. are once again taking part in the Ontario Library Association’s Blue Spruce Reading Program. Each year 10 Canadian picture books are nominated for the Blue Spruce Award. Students in Kindergarten to grade 2 participate in the program and are read each of the nominated books from January to April during their Library classes. After all the stories have been read, the students will have the chance to vote for the book of their choice.

This year students in Grades 3 and 4 are invited to participate in the Ontario Library Association’s Silver Birch Express Program. Five of the nominated books will be read to the whole class and the students will have the opportunity to independently read the other five. The Grade 5 studetns have the opportunity to participating in the Silver Birch Fiction and Silver Birch Non-Fiction Program. This year the books will stay in the Grade 5 classroom to allow the students to circulated the books. After students finish reading a book they use Google Classrooms to fill in a Google reading response form and then they are eligible to “spin to win” for a prize!

The purpose of the Silver Birch Program is to bring an excellent selection of recent Canadian children's books to the attention of Ontario children. The program involves reading at leave 5 books in each category from a list of ten nominated fiction or ten nominated non-fiction titles. Students who have read 5 books will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite titles in April!

Please ask your child how they are involved this year and stay tuned to hear about the L.P.S. winners and then the Overall winners in May 2018!!

The Scholastic Book Fair will be at our school during the above dates.  It will be open several periods a day giving all classes the opportunity to come down and browse and make purchases.  It will also be open Wednesday December 20th from 5:00 pm until the start of the Holiday Concert. This is a great place to do some holiday shopping and give back to our school!  A Book Fair pamphlet will go home a week before the fair starts with each student and on the back of it there is a chance for a student to win $25 in books for their home library and $25 for their classroom library.  The draw will be made Monday December 18th in the afternoon, so the ballot must be returned before that time for a chance to win.  Thank you for supporting Limehouse Library!

We forward to surprising the students at Limehouse Public School with all the new library books this year!

Welcome to our Library, the hub of our school!  We are situated right across from the teacher's staff room near the office, and we're always happy to have students and staff visit.

Often students find a quiet corner to read or a large workspace to complete a project in our library, and are always welcome to browse the shelves.  The younger classes come down weekly for a story-time session and book exchange, while our older students exchange books as they need them. They often have a novel signed out or a non-fiction book of interest. 
The graphic novels and magazines seem to fly off the shelves!  Parents, we hope you enjoy the books your children bring home with them, and help them return their books in good condition so they can check out their next read!
Come & peek inside the Limehouse library!

Come & visit the library for your next great adventure!
