Warburg School Library Learning Commons is open Monday – Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.  Providing a variety of resources available to our Pre-School through Grade 12 classes.  From print to digital audio, our L.L.C. holds a collection of over 16,500 titles for our students academic and recreational reading.  As well as, access to the B.G.R.S Destiny network of schools (inter-library loans) and professional resources for staff.  With opportunity to explore online & print resources, to research, learn and work in groups or alone, our Library Learning Commons is the perfect place to expand the minds of our students.

This year with the COVID -19 pandemic health and safety protocols our students are not allowed to visit the library as a class. For grades 4 and up,  the best way to find a book these days is to search on our online database “Destiny Discover”, log in with your student username and place a Hold on the title. Then wait until Mrs. Sarvas contacts you that your book is ready for pick up.  Our digital books are available 24/7 so make sure to search Destiny Discover for audiobook or ebooks as there are lots of great titles to choose!

Our lower elementary (ECS – grade 3) teachers are picking classroom books for their students to enjoy.

We are partnered with Scholastic Canada Book Clubs to give families the opportunity to order books for their home library:

The Scholastic Book Club orders for Kindergarten and Grades 3-7 are organized by Mrs. Sarvas in our library.  Please see HERE for Parent online orders and search Sarvas as the teacher name.

A virtual Scholastic Book Fair will be held in the near future – watch for news on that coming soon!

Any Scholastic purchase benefits our school library by enabling credits toward new books for all! Win-Win!
