About your library


Welcome to Your Library - Learning Commons


Your Learning Commons Staff:


Mr. Beggs Library Department Head

Mr. Erickson L.A.N. Administrator

Mrs. Little Teacher-Librarian/English Dept. Head

The Library is located on the second floor near the top of the main stairwell, we have almost 4000 books for you too explore - MOST are fiction because here at Brooklin High School much of our research is completed through online research.


The Learning Commons

It is the entire library space AND is a center for teaching and learning.  Your library includes print and online resources, access to technology, and staff to respond to the individual needs of visitors. When viewed together: the library, classrooms and online environment make up what is called the Learning Commons.


Our Mission:

1) Student Achievement - The school library must have a measurable effect on the engagement and achievement of students in meeting ministry curriculum expectations. It must provide a safe learning environment and respond to individual needs.

2) Literacy -  The library supports student literacy to both foster a lifelong appreciation for reading as well as to improve achievement. The library collection must be inclusive and tailored to engage students.

3) Innovation - The library provides an environment that promotes unique methods of exploring, communicating and demonstrating understanding. As technology unfolds the library is a place where it is embraced; the entire school community is invited to participate as possibilities are explored and the new becomes familiar.
