They say “you are what you eat”.  What does that mean for you?  March is Nutrition Month, so check out Canada’s Food Guide and make sure you’re eating healthy for this and every other month of the year!  Come to the library to see our book display and Mr. Kopyto’s photo display of Haig teachers’ favourite foods

Network slow? Please reduce your video streaming

Website screenshotsIn order to ensure that everyone has access to the network, please use streaming video sparingly and for school purposes only.  Here is a message from the Toronto District School Board’s computer department:

“Please bear in mind that high definition video streaming should be used for educational purposes only and its use limited when possible. Should high demands continue, users may experience slower than normal network connections.”

 

Read a good book? Suggest it to others!

Steps to finding a book:

#1.  In what subject am I generally interested?  Think about your interests and books you’ve read in the past.

#2.  What books match my interests?  Use Toronto Public Library’s Novelist (you need a TPL card) database to browse titles and help you choose a book that matches your interests and reading preferences. amazon.com‘s “Look Inside” feature helps you browse the books’ content.

#3.  Check our EHSS Library Catalogue (see top of right panel) to see if we have the book and where it is located in the library.

Don’t see the title in our collection?  Click here to make a book suggestion for our library.
