The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline. Humanity has nearly destroyed its world through global warming, but now an even greater evil lurks. The indigenous people of North America are being hunted and harvested for their bone marrow, which carries the key to recovering something the rest of the population has lost: the ability to dream.

Munro vs the Coyote by Darren Groth. Munro hopes a 6-month student exchange in Australia will help him move beyond the flashbacks and anger management issues he has been experiencing since the death of his younger sister.

Subject to Change by Karen Nesbitt. Declan’s small-town life is a series of let-downs—his delinquent brother, his own lackluster performance at school and the ultimate: his father’s unexplained five-year absence. How is it all going to change when he’s confronted with the truth about his parents’ divorce?

Exo by Fonda Lee. Sometime in the future, a young soldier working for the extraterrestrials who have conquered Earth fights a rebel group but learns that he has family ties to someone he sees as a criminal.

Youtubeurs: Clique sur J'Aime by Olivier Simard. Henri Bastien, 14 ans, un garçon impopulaire qui souhaite atteindre la notoriété sur YouTube, mais surtout, se faire remarquer par Noémie, la fille qu'il admire de loin pendant qu'il joue les techniciens pour sa troupe de théâtre.

Library Facilities and Services

The Library Learning Commons has undergone significant change over the past few years. Renovations have opened up additional spaces. From our library “Oasis” where students can eat their lunch or snacks, to a number of enclosed co-learning centres where students can work collaboratively with the aid of a white board or smart TV, to a maker space with ergonomic tables and supplies for completing hands-on projects - the LLC is a place where students can access the resources they need and use them in a comfortable, inviting environment to support their learning. If you’re at the school, stop by to see our show stopping circulation desk made from upcycled books by our own students!
