St. John's-Ravenscourt Libraries Online PortaL

Welcome to the SJR Libraries Online Portal.

The SJR libraries are centers of literacy and research. We foster and celebrate the love of reading, and act as a learning and social hubs for the whole school community.

St. John's-Ravenscourt School has two separate libraries to support the SJR Community. The Rosenberg Library serves the Junior School (K-5) and the Bonnycastle Library serves the Middle School (6-8) and the Senior School (9-12). Please click on the icons to the left for more information about each library.

SJR's library team consists of Teacher-Librarians, Ms. Riddell and Mrs Bergen, and Library Technician, Ms. Malenfant. We are always happy to help readers find what they need and frequently provide suggestions through physical and virtual displays, the Books of the Day on the library's Instagram account and more. Students can also search the library catalog to find the right book, e-book or audiobook for them.

Although each library operates independently, community members may borrow materials from either library.

We offer a range of digital resources to help students in school and at home. Students access them through our website, which includes resources to guide them in the effective use of databases, digital collections and other electronic subscriptions for their research and personal inquiry.
