Check It Out!

Our circulation system enables us to search the Library collection from home. We will be reviewing navigation of the Library system with our students this fall and, once we are settled in, I will be happy to show parents how to access it from home as well.

Access the Library online here!

 

Schedule:

The Library is open for part of every day at McCammon.  K-2 classes have a scheduled Library block once a week, but are welcome to use the Open Book Exchanges as well at the discretion of their teachers. 

Open Book Exchange is every morning from 8:15 - 8:30 (after teachers have taken attendance) and 12:25 - 12:55 every afternoon except Wednesdays.  Students can access the Library at this time with a Library pass supplied by their classroom teacher.  

As well, Mrs. Kushniryk is in the Library every day after school for quick exchanges if bussing is not an issue.

Preschool Story Times:

  • Drop-in Story Times are designed for 3 to 5 year olds.  Younger children are welcome if you check with  Mrs. Kushniryk ahead of time.

  • Our fall schedule begins Friday, Sept. 29 at 10:45am. A full schedule for the fall is posted outside the Library, at Strong Start and in the attachments below.

Hot Stuff! 

 

BIG BIG NEWS:  Coles Chilliwack has once again chosen McCammon for their 2017 Adopt-a-school fall fundraiser.  Over $900 was raised last year!  We are in the second week of the campaign. Please share with your family and friends how they can "heart" Mr. Corbett's story. We want his story to be one of the top 5 most-loved in BC.  That's worth $500 more for the Library and a chance at $2500!! More iformation can be found on the adopt a school web site through the link near the top of this page and also posted by Mr. Driscoll on the McCammon website.

Our fall Scholastic Book Fair will be Oct. 17, 18, & 19.  Watch for notes, posters and fliers with more information soon.

So many books!  We try bring in new titles regularly and try to keep up with all the popular series.  If your child has been hooked by a particular book, encourage them to let Mrs. Kushniryk know so she can look for copies, sequels and similar titles.  Some of our most popular books are part of the "Branches" set of series.  These are great novels for kids ready to transition to chapter books.  Dragon Masters, Owl Diaries, Eerie Elementary are three examples of the different series.

 

Home Reading:

Super Reader has begun.  If you have any questions about how it works, please feel free to pop by the Library or send me an email.  The Kiwanis Club is offering another FREE hot dog lunch is we meet our goals.  More information will be coming.....in the meantime, READ, READ, READ!

 The single greatest indicator of school success is regular reading practice at home.  Whether students are reading to themselves or someone else, or being read to – it all makes a positive difference. 

 Parent Library Shelf: 

Parents can become patrons of our Library and sign out books as well.  Our parent Library shelf includes books on a variety of subjects including homework help, discipline, health education, substance abuse prevention and getting your kids to do more chores with less arguments.  Come in and check it out!
