Primary Orientation – Session 1: Manners and Sammy the Shelfie

When students enter the library, it is important to learn how to display good library citizenship.  One way to do this is by showing “Manners in the Library” as sung in the following video.

When students are ready to explore books on the shelves, this is where our shelf markers play an important role to help keep all the books in order.


When students take books home, it is important that books are taken good care!
