The Burnaby Public Library branches are closed but you can still borrow materials using their Paper Bag Pickup service. You order materials online, BPL staff will prepare your order and you pick them at a branch. https://www.bpl.bc.ca/paper-bag-pickup
The Burnaby Public Library is running their great Summer Reading Club again! This summer, the program will be digital. Registration is free and opens June 12. https://www.bpl.bc.ca/kids/kids-events-and-programs/summer-reading-club
It’s almost the end of the school year and it’s time to return library books. If you’ve already returned your materials, THANK YOU! If not, please drop them off outside the school’s main entrance on Rumble Street before Thursday, June 18. There’s a book cart there, Monday – Friday from about 8:30 – 3:30 each day. The books will sit in ‘quarantine’ for 3 days before they’re checked in and removed from students’ accounts.
Thanks for sending your booklets to school and emailing me with your updated Reading Club booklets. I will have your certificates and prizes ready in late June!
Hello Suncrest! Please explore my new blog. There are many links to free audio and ebooks, fun read aloud stories with favourite authors, entertaining games, research tools and virtual tours.
Some of the research tools from BC Digital Classroom require a username and password. Licensing rules don’t allow that information to be posted online. This information is contained in a listserv email sent to parents’ email addresses on Tuesday, May 12. You can also email me at Eadie.Ho@burnabyschools.ca and I’ll send it to you.
My Suncrest hours are Monday – Thursday, 9:15 – 2:30.
