Fall has Arrived!

It may not feel like it outside today, but Fall has definitely arrived
– at least in the Library!
It’s hard to believe that it is almost October already! The start of the school year has flown by.


With the weather growing cooler and the nights getting longer,
it is the perfect time to curl up with one of our “unbeLEAFable” books!


Enjoy following clues and solving puzzles?
Take out one of our many mystery novels!!
How does it end? It’s a mystery!
See if you can solve it first!

Fall books and fall colours are out all around the library – lots of great reads to choose from.
Come and visit us soon!



New Library Staff

Image result for nice to meet you

I am so excited to say a big “Hello!” and “Nice to meet you!” to the MEI students, families and staff!

My name is Mrs. Katie Veldhoen, and I am the new Library Technician at MEI Elementary.  I am thrilled to be here and feeling so blessed to be able to join the amazing staff at MEI.

I can’t wait to meet everyone and share my love of books and all things library with you. September is almost here! See you soon!

Congratulations to our Reading Record Prize Winners!


This year we had 150 submissions of reading records handed in to the Library.  In this reading record program, students filled out lists of books that they had read in different themes. Each submission qualified them to enter the draw for prizes at the end of the school year.

Today we held a draw for 2 grand prizes of $10.00 gift cards for the House of James and a whopping 20 free gelato coupons!

Congratulations to all the students who participated in our reading record program!  We are so proud of each one of you.

Many thanks go to the House of James for their generous support of the program.
