Manitoba School Library Day

The Manitoba Government Proclaims October 28, 2013 as Manitoba School Library Day:

“School libraries in Manitoba function as information-rich centres supporting inquiry and research in schools. They are active learning centres that provide instruction and access to a wide range of resources locally and globally. School libraries also foster student achievement and collaboration as well as the growth of traditional collections and electronic databases for the purpose of curriculum implementation in schools.” Hon. Nancy Allan, Manitoba Minister of Education (past)

Students from across Manitoba will be “Dropping Everything and Reading” throughout this day to celebrate their school libraries. They will be joining students from across the country as they celebrate National School Library Day on October 28, 2013.
