Lower School
Grades K3–5



The Lower and Middle School Library (La Bibliothèque) is a dynamic environment at the heart of the school. The Library promotes the love of reading and learning by providing students with opportunities to explore reading interests. The Library features an extensive and continually renewed collection providing a centerpiece for all student learning with extensive online resourcesSearch our Collection.

La Bibliothèque works collaboratively with teachers and other specialists to support the curriculum and to encourage a lifelong love of reading. The collection offers a diverse range of quality and engaging print and electronic items.

Regular and flexible classes for all students from Grades K3–5 ensure that literature appreciation, information literacy, and curriculum objectives are met for all students. All K3–5 students regularly check out books as part of their library sessions.

Special events, such as the PFA-sponsored authors/illustrators-in-residence program, as well as division-wide literacy events, encourage our learners to celebrate and enjoy all things book-related. This collaborative team approach makes the Library an integral part of school learning.

The Library contains nearly 90,000 print materials, including French, Mandarin, and Spanish language materials. We also have extensive digital materials available and research spaces for utilizing ethical and appropriate technology tools. All teachers and parents are welcome to use the La Bibliothèque to find information and to check out books.
