ST. PATRICK LIBRARY
the centre of learning activity at St. Pat’s.
More than a library,
it is a learning lab and shared space dedicated to addressing the needs of 21st
century learners. It is the physical and virtual meeting place where students
and teachers learn, work, create and play.
Students and staff use
the Library Learning Commons to access books, periodicals and reference
materials, networked computers that allow access to virtual collections and to
research, study and collaborate.
BiblioTech Club: Volunteer in the
library for an opportunity to learn new skills, earn community service hours
and have fun!

Forest of Reading: Join the challenge – read from a selected list of new
fiction and non-fiction by Canadian authors, discuss books with other readers,
vote for your favourite, and go to the Festival of Trees author Festival in
