ESA Library Open House: Tuesday June 26th, 9am until 11am

An open invitation to all members of the ESA Community to drop by the Library on Marks Review Day, Tuesday June 26th.

  • The tea will be on… and there may be treats (while supplies last).
  • Remember to BYOM – Bring your own mug!!

Check out our New Arrivals in Books… and sign out some great summer reads!

  • You must be a returning student, and you must have ‘good Library credit‘ to check out books over the summer.

Score yourself some great vintage vinyl – prices reduced to $1 per LP.

  • We’ve put out some great new Broadway Cast Recordings, some new Classical, some new classic female vocalists.
  • There are also some real gems, including the likes of Maria Callas, for premium prices.  Ask about these items at the Circulation Desk

There will also be a selection of (gently) Used Books available…

  • Nothing more than $1.
  • Mass market paperbacks, trade paperbacks and hardcover editions.

We also have some free stuff available… most notably our entire collection of CBC News in Review CD’s.

  • These are now all available online (teacher access only with an education account) and haven’t circulated in a couple of years.
  • If you are interested in these, most likely for an Art Project we would expect, send an e-mail to enid.wray@tdsb.on.ca anytime after you read this posting to claim them.
  • First come first served.
  • You must come in and pick them up on Tuesday morning…

Library Circulation: CLOSED!

As you’ve been hearing on the announcements for the last two weeks…  Library Circulation is closed as of today.

ALL Library items are due back.  Late fines apply to all overdue items – past and present.

  • The ONLY exception is Grade 9 and 10 Reading Circle books with extended due dates.

Get ahead of the curve.  Bring your books back today, or Monday at the latest.

We have already been making calls home to Grade 11 and 12 students. We will begin calling everyone next Tuesday.

Library Circulation Closing June 2nd: Bring It Back!

Further to the daily announcements and the postings around the school…

Library circulation closes on June 2nd.

  • All items on loan are due back by no later than that date.
  • Any new loans are also due back on June 2nd, regardless of what the circulation period should be (i.e. 3 weeks for general materials).

We have been ‘chasing’ Grade 12 students these last two weeks… including starting to make phone calls home.

  • Reminder that all students with overdue items receive a weekly overdue notice to their TDSB student e-mail address.
  • Additionally your HF teacher receives a notification each week and – hopefully – reminds you to ‘Bring It Back!’
  • You can also check – and manage – your Library loans yourself by logging on at the ESA Virtual Library Catalogue.
  • Avoid that dreaded phone call home by returning your materials and settling up any late fines… (we make deals on fines!!  Ask us!)

Summer circulation – for return the first day back to school in September – takes place the last week of June – after exams.

  • Students and Staff may borrow books over the summer.
  • Check out the ESA Library Pinterest page to peruse the new titles you might want to take home to read this summer.
  • Remember to check the ESA Library catalogue for all titles available.

 

Take home a great new book for the weekend.

Make time for reading!  Our first batch of fall 2016 New Arrivals is ready to circulate.

Today we put out the first batch of new YA Books.  There are lots more on the way, but our delivery has been held up.  Stay Tuned.

Yesterday’s “new to the shelf” books include some of the hottest titles of the season – some just released yesterday! – as well as a few of the titles on the Giller Longlist which was announced earlier today.  Author’s like Madeleine Thien, Steven Price, Mona Awad, Colson Whitehead, Ben H Winters , Dave Eggers and many, many more.

  • Drop by the Library to see what’s new.
  • Check out a book, or two (as long as you have no overdue items!!)

Keep tabs on what’s new at the Library at the ESA Library Pinterest webpage.

  • The Pinterest pages will be updated daily as new arrivals are catalogued and available for circulation.
