Flex Day Makerspace Christmas Craft Workshop

Join us in the Library Makerspace during the flex block on Tuesday, November 27th and learn to make a holiday craft. You can choose to make a card, or start to learn to crochet to make a holiday ornament. You may need to come back for more than one session to complete your craft. Fortunately, the Makerspace is open at lunch and after school for you! You can see some examples of the types of things you can make at the top of this post. If you’re planning on coming, we’d appreciate it if you’d email Ms Gladwin at deidre.gladwin@burnabyschools.ca or come by the library to sign up ahead of time as it helps us to plan for supplies (you can still come if you don’t sign up, but it helps us plan).

Vikings Make Beautiful Cards

We had a great turn-out for our handmade card workshop Friday at lunch.  We have some very creative Makers.  Thanks for sharing your work with us!  If you missed the workshop, we still have supplies and instructions available in the Makerspace.  When the library reopens after exams, come on down and make a card for your friend’s birthday, for Father’s day, to celebrate Graduation, or just to brighten someone’s day.

See our Makers at work…

Library Services During AP Exams

AP Exams begin Monday May 7th and many of them are written in the Library.  As exams begin before school and don’t finish until 4pm, library hours will be very restricted.  Students may return books during the book closure using the book drop slot in the door.

May 10/11 access to the Non-Fiction Section will be restricted, but most fiction, magazines, and DVD’s will be accessible.  Regular sign-out, book return, and renewal services will be available.

Study block students can access the library only on May 10/11.  Please go to the Cafeteria or Connect if you need space to work during the closure days.
