Resources in the library are constantly being updated to include all students’ interests and needs. The teacher-librarian works closely with both teachers and students to support the selection of reading and study materials for all students.

Every day is an opportunity for students to enjoy reading at Mary Shadd Public School.

"The presence of a teacher-librarian was the single strongest predictor of reading enjoyment for both Grade 3 and 6 students. Reading enjoyment is strongly and positively linked to student achievement."
