Use of the Library

All students have the opportunity to have a full block of library once a week. During this time, students work on literacy skills, communication skills and are able to return and check out books of interest and their reading level. Students also have access to the library to work on projects and use technology during Learning Commons time. 

Students are encouraged to use the library during free time and are encouraged to access research materials. The library is a place for all students and staff where we hope they feel welcomed. If students, staff or parents need assistance, place come in and ask for help. 

Searching for a book? Please check out our Library Catalogue (please select Uplands Elementary)

Mondays Open Library Learning Commons at lunch time!

Students can come to the library for games on Mondays!
