Much learning in life is informal - learning from other people, mass media and the environment. Libraries provide a formal setting for engaging
students with their free access to books, computers and various programmes. They offer unique opportunities for learning outside the classroom.
The elementary students at Erudite School have been regular visitors at Runnymede Library. Their routine excursions provide an educational extension of classroom learning coupled with a connection to the community.
The purpose of our regular visits to the library is to engage the children with books, with librarians and with each other. It may include searching for a book for a project or for pleasure. It may include sharing a book with classmates.
It may include working independently on an assignment based on a library book.
"Libraries are rooms of hope, rooms of concentration, rooms of dreams and study"
