Teacher Resource Room

The Teacher Resource Room on Floor 1 is the place to go when you want Ministry of Education curriculum and support documents, DVDs, kits, big books, puppets, posters, and CDs.  Also on Floor 1 of the Education Library you will find K-12 textbooks and related teacher guides, children's and YA books, and professional journals for teachers.  All of these items may be borrowed on 2-week loans and renewed online via your Library Account.  We are now moving professional resources for teachers -- lesson and curriculum unit planning materials and books on classroom practice and the teaching profession -- from Floor 3 to Floor 2.  Research materials on Floor 2 will move to the newly designated Floor 3 Research Collection during 2019-20.  Please ask us if you can't find what you are looking for as we work to make our resources for teachers more accessible.
