Library

The MEF IS library provides curriculum support and meets the recreational reading needs for the whole school from Preschool to Grade 12. The up-to-date online library resources are also offered to encourage a love of reading and enjoyment of books.  Our hope is for families to benefit from the myriad of resources available within our library and online collection. Parents are invited to register as library patrons and may check out 10 books at a time. Circulation rules for students also apply to parents (1 book by an author, 1 in a series). Parents are invited to the MEF IS library to volunteer their time to help with reshelving and labelling.
