Kensington Intermediate Senior High - Kensington, Prince Edward Island

Kensington Intermediate Senior High

Adopted by: Coles County Fair Mall 

This past year was my first year as Vice Principal at KISH. When I arrived, I was surprised at how small the stacks in the library were. I spent some time perusing the books and noticed that although the teacher librarian has ordered a some newer titles, the collection is quite dated. They are in need of some newer high interest YA books to generate more traffic in the library and to increase a desire to read. Before filling out this application I wanted to see if there was enough interest in a book club at the grade 7 level to start generating an interest in reading. To my surprise, I had 15 students show up! This tells me the interest is there. I had to borrow some books from another school.

Our library needs to build on the diversity of what is on the shelves in terms of content, genre, and levels of reading.

Since the COVID restrictions have been in place the circulation of books takes considerably longer. That means there are fewer books to choose from, in a collection that was already pretty limited. That means that students cannot always find a “just right” book or need to wait for quite some time to get the book that is on hold.
