About your Library/Learning Commons.
Welcome to The Library & Learning Commons.
At Fleetwood Park Secondary, students are welcome in the library/learning commons before school, at lunch and after school, beginning at 8am and closing no earlier than 3:30pm. With a teacher’s permission, students may also use the library during on a drop-in basis. We offer a wide variety of materials including: novels, graphic novels, non-fiction materials. In addition, our library database is also linked to many on-line resources, which are particularly useful for student projects. We currently have 30 computers available for use in the Library and a class set of 30 iPads and 20 iPad minis.
Statistics have shown that reading improves grades across all subject areas, not just English and the Humanities.
Dragons already know this! Over the last year alone circulation of library materials has increased dramatically.

WWI War Museum Box.
The Canadian War Museum shipped a truck of World War I artifacts, both real and replica. The favourite item: A gas rattler that was used to warn soldiers of an impending gas attack!
The Kite Runner.
It felt to me like it was a biography about Amir... and shows people the many troubles that people are facing in the middle east, such as the threats of the Taliban. This book really captures what life is like in those countries.

Charm and Strange
I definitely enjoyed the book. I came into it a bit unsure, and the flashbacks are a bit hard to follow until you get into it, but once a couple chapters in, I was hooked... I really enjoyed the take on 'werewolves' in this book. There are so many werewolves in pop culture right now tha tit feels sort of over done for the most part, but I really liked the idea that rather than one night a month he's a wolf, there's a wolf inside him all the time.
