LIBRARY RESOURCES

Students and staff have access to an extensive collection of print and digital resources.  These include books, reference materials, magazines, newspapers, academic journals and more.

Our large library provides plenty of space for students to relax, read or research. Our comfy chairs are a favorite for relaxing and reading a good book.  Numerous tables and chairs allow students the space to work on their assignments or projects. Our wide range of resources in print or digital will provide you with what you need to complete your work.

Our print collection consists of the latest and highly sought after fiction books of all genres to please all readers.  Our non-fiction collection consists of a wide variety of topics including the latest technologies.

And of course we also carry a collection of fiction and non-fiction French resources for our French immersion students.

CIRCULATION

Books are signed out for 2 weeks and can be renewed if no one is waiting for the item.  Students who lose or damage their books will be asked to pay the replacement cost.  All fees are to be paid prior to the end of each semester.

COMPUTERS

We have computer stations for use for research and printing as well as chrome books to loan for classwork.  We also have a dedicated Wi-Fi connection to ensure you always have access to the resources you need. Students are expected to follow the internet policy of the school, as they would in any computer lab at LCS.

PRINTING

Printing is free if school related, otherwise it’s 10¢ per page for black and white and 25¢ for color.
