Library

Peart Library is located on the main floor of Sheldon-Williams Collegiate. 

Peart Library provides a quiet place for students, small groups, and classes to work on research projects, assignments, and inquiry-based learning tasks. It also allows students to access supplementary reading materials for classroom or home reading logs.

One of the main goals of the library staff is to help students develop information literacy skills. To assist in this process, the library has 10 desktop computers, 60 Chromebooks, 20 laptops, and 15 iPads with several educational apps available for research and presentations.

The teacher-librarian collaborates with the teaching staff to assist with instruction, unit planning, assignment design, and evaluation.  For ideas on what to read next check out our teacher-librarians blog.
