Library Mission Statement

The Randolph Library is the heart of the school and provides a wide range of materials that reflect differing points of view, varying levels of difficulty and formats to meet the needs of students and staff and the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.  The library program provides learning experiences that encourage students to become lifelong learners and global citizens through inquiry.

I am from Guelph, Ontario, Canada. A fun fact about me is that I used to work at the National Museum of American History on an exhibit project about play and invention. My favorite children’s book is “Drawn Together” Minh Le and Dan Santat. My favorite place to visit is my family’s cottage on a lake north of Toronto. I feel included when I share my favorite foods with friends. I enjoy teaching students how to be a risk-taker because I enjoy exploring new ideas. My hope as your librarian is to encourage inquiry and learn about our students’ passions and interests. My dream as your child’s librarian is to inspire new ideas and encourage wonder.
