Too Many New Titles to List!
Your library is a never ending source for books and resources, even more so now with the addition of over 100 books. This year, through fundraising, donations and contributions from the Parents Council, we have been able to update our collection by adding an excellent selection of new titles, classics and recommended favourites. We have added to our Non-fiction, Junior fiction, Teen fiction, Adult fiction, Parent Resources, and Religion collections. Come in and see what you can find. There is sure to be something for everyone!

Wonder by R.J. Palacio
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He's about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances? (Publisher's Description)
"A gentle, totally mesmerising book written in a compelling, realistic style that invites the reader into the intimate daily life of this marvelous, genuine boy and his family and holds them there. It is a powerful story that gives us the world we live in with a clean set of eyes; one you will return to again and again, with voices that will stay with you for a very long time. It is also about being yourself, even if the odds are against you, because in the end, that’s all you can be. For ages 10 and up (through adult readers), ‘Wonder’ is a thoroughly wonderful gift and a book that you must read."
