In the summer, 2017, we relocated 10 of our collections to bring together most of our resources for teachers on one level. Current Ministry of Education curriculum and support documents, DVDs, kits, big books, puppets, posters, CDs, K-12 textbooks and related teacher guides, children's and YA books, and professional journals for teachers are now all located on Floor 1 and all circulate for 2 weeks.  The Reference Collection has moved up to Floor 2 and circulates for 3 days (with renewals possible unless the item is requested by someone else).  We are now moving professional resources for teachers -- lesson and curriculum unit planning materials and books on classroom practice and the teaching profession -- to Floor 2.  Research materials on Floor 2 will move to the newly designated Floor 3 Research Collection during 2018-19.
