Bayview Academy - St. George's, Newfoundland and Labrador

Bayview Academy

Adopted by: Coles Corner Brook Plaza  

This year due to COVID, we were not permitted to have our annual book fair. As such, I have received no money to buy new books for our library. Our elementary school students are struggling to find books that they have not previously read over the last 2 years. Since opening 2 years ago, the library commons is the hub of our school and students get so excited to come in and see if there are any new books. Their excitement is contagious.

Many of our students come from low socio-economic backgrounds and a huge population of our school is Mi'kmaq. Many students do not have books at home and are so excited when there are books available for them to keep and take home. At present, about 90% of my K-8 students take books from the library and exchange books twice a week. Since the opening of the library, we have seen an increase in reading comprehension and love of reading.

A final reason I am applying is that many of our most read books are in hard shape and need replacing. We do not have money to replace them right now. We have several favorite series that are taped up and falling apart. But, I cannot bare to toss them as children line up to read them over and over.
