Library Studies

The children attend a Library session each week in the MARC Library van.

A developmental program is offered by trained children’s librarians. Regular borrowing is encouraged as a basis for developing reading skills and as an enjoyable leisure activity. 

Children need to be provided with a named Library Bag (cloth, drawstring type). 

The school has a well stocked library and children are able to also borrow books from this library. 

As distinct from “take-home reading books”, Preps are not expected to be able to literally “read” books borrowed from the Library – rather they provide an enjoyable sharing experience for parent and child together.
