The Mulgrave Library holds a rich collection of both print and digital resources to support our students’ academic and personal achievements.
Our library goals are: to empower students to become reflective and critical thinkers; to encourage them to become skilful and lifelong inquirers; to teach effective and ethical use of information; to develop appreciation of literature, local, national and global; and to promote a lifelong love of reading.
The Mulgrave librarians collaborate with classroom teachers on curriculum planning, provide faculty with professional resources and guidance, support and enrich classroom learning with library resources and encourage a reading-rich culture.
In addition to junior school library classes and middle and senior school library research classes, the library provides quiet space for tutoring, studying and reading. The library resources are continually enriched to keep pace with the curriculum to promote our students’ academic success and to support the inquiring and learning environment and curriculum across all grade levels. Our students develop sophisticated information retrieval skills that will prepare them well for their post-graduate education.
The library holds over 40,000 titles, 1,200 videos and DVD’s, and current journal collection. The library catalogue is searchable online and provides direct links to curriculum-relevant electronic resources and to databases: Opposing Viewpoints, Global Issues in Contest, World History in Context, Science in Context, E-Library Canada and Ebscohost.
The Mulgrave Library is open from 8:00am to 4:30pm all school days and the librarians, Ms. Chapin and Mrs. Brough, are available to guide and assist students and teachers.
