Welcome to the Nisbet Library!

BZERC LIbrary Resources‚Äčnew books in french.jpegDear Parents:

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. Your child will soon begin to check out books from the school library. Your child will be coming to the library once every school cycle.

When your child brings the book home, spend time reading together. If your child can read, listen to him or her read the book and help with words they may not know. We want your child to love reading so please make the time you share books together fun!

Please encourage your child to return his or her book each library class. You can check your child's library schedule on the school library page.

Sometimes accidents happen. If a library book is lost or damaged while checked out to your child the book must be replaced. The book can be paid for by cheque‚Äč or cash (correct change is appreciated) for the original retail price. Once the book is paid for, your child's account will be cleared and he or she may resume library checkout.

 You can help your child by:
¬∑        Finding a safe place for library books away from little brothers/sisters and family pets.    
¬∑        Encourage your child to read for enjoyment and to notice/discuss the illustrations with you.
¬∑        Read and re-read the book and discuss favourite characters and important parts of the story.


When is the library open?

8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

What other services does the library offer?

The library offers free online books that children can read and listen to at home. Please visit 

the ‚Äč‚Äč‚Äčlibrary website and click on Tumble Books for more information.‚Äč

We are always looking for book donations for our awesome freebrary. If you would like to donate gently used books please drop them off in the library. Thank-you!

Please contact us  if you have any concerns or questions:
