Honoré Mercier Library

Every class, from Pre-K to Grade 6, visits the library once a week to borrow English and French books. Parent volunteers help the librarian by providing students with enriched visits to the library. Younger students have story time in English or French. Our library is fully automated and computers are available for students to search the online catalogue.

Every year we strive to improve our library with new acquisitions in English and French as well as purchasing new furniture such as shelving. It is our constant goal to make the library an inviting place for all.
