The Eleanor Armstrong Library is at the heart of our school, both physically and educationally. Its thousands of books and many computers serve the needs of all students in the Niakwa Place School community.

Literacy is promoted through story reading sessions, book exchanges and special activities such as I Love to Read month. Throughout the year, the library hosts speakers and events that relate to classroom needs and the school’s theme. Niakwa Place School unifies different classes and grade groups through common themes and special events. The teacher-librarian collaborates with teachers on group projects and assists students by teaching research and writing skills.

The library is named in honour of Eleanor Armstrong, who worked as the librarian from the time the school opened in 1974 until her retirement in 2000.

The library program includes:

  • Literacy promotion through story reading (for younger students) and book exchange (for older students). New books are displayed on a regular basis.

  • Resource-based learning – the teaching of information skills through research projects using books, periodicals and the Internet.

  • Special student programming – speakers, authors and artists are invited to meet with students to enhance student learning and supplement curriculum areas.

  • I Love to Read month – Special themes and activities running through the month promote reading, writing, illustration, the art of storytelling and the joy of literature.
