Our goal at Ryerson's library learning commons is to foster life-long readers and learners. We are a student centered learning commons, a central hub, which aims to provide a blending of literacy and technology within a welcoming, playful and enriching space. We encourage inquiry-based learning and strive to instill in our students the skills necessary to safely and efficiently navigate the ever growing, information rich world in which we live.
Our library collection is wide and varied selection of quality reading materials, available in a variety of formats. This ensures that every student is able to find a book that suits his/her interests and reading levels. Students have a book exchange opportunity once per 6 day cycle.
Our high tech and low tech Makerspace areas are an extension of our learning commons. Students engage in coding, green screen technology and many other computer applications and technologies to deepen and demonstrate their learning. Students can also be found building, creating with Lego, doing puzzles, participating in art and science design challenges, as well as a wealth of other student-directed activities.
Ryerson Reading Club
We believe that books should be in kids' hands. Therefore, we provide all students the opportunity to take up to ten books home over summer holidays and extended breaks. The students receive a Ryerson Reading Club bag to store the books in for safe keeping.
Little Lending Library
We are pleased to offer our students and our community the opportunity to access books throughout the year at our Little Lending Library located on the Ryerson Ave. side of our school. Students, parents and community members are encouraged to bring a book, take a book and leave a book to share the love of reading!
