Chetwynd Public Library Visits

We are excited for additional support of our school program from the Chetwynd Public Library this school year. Part of this support is to bring library books out to each student, according to their requests, typically on the 3rd Monday of every month. We recommend you have a conversation with your child about this program and the positive aspects of reading. You may also want to discuss what topics he/she has requested and talk about his/her interests. We do not plan to monitor the book choices of your child. We hope this program will be positive encouragement for your child to spend time reading.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
