On behalf of the Argyle Library Learning Commons, I just wanted to take a moment to touch base with you. We are living in strange times. At Argyle, throughout our community, and around the world people are having to adjust and adapt to a different way of working, communicating, and living.
Although this transition is certainly challenging, please know that the staff at Argyle and people around our community are working as quickly and carefully as we can to connect with and support you. There will be bumps in the road, new challenges that will pop up, and moments where we will just have to shake our heads over the mistakes we have made as we learn to adapt to the current situation. This is okay. It is an important part of learning.
The Secondary School Teacher Librarians have been working together to create these pages of subject area content resources, online tools, and information about inquiry learning; we hope these pages might make things a little easier for you. Please just click the link to the District Continuity Guide above. If you can’t find what you are looking for or are struggling with a resource please let me know. I will do my best to help.
If you are looking for support with your coursework in the areas of research, citation, or using tech tools please contact me and I will do my best to help and/ or connect you with someone who may be more knowledgeable than me. I am also scouring the web for access to e-books. I hope to find many texts for all of you book lovers to read and enjoy!
I will update these pages of resources and tools as I learn and find new things. Please contact me via e-mail at email@example.com. or contact the district librarians at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, and most importantly, I want you to know that we care and that we are here to support you.
I look so forward to seeing you all when this time has passed.
Our school's Library Learning Commons
Argyle’s Library Learning Commons aims to enrich, supplement, and extend the school’s curriculum. By promoting learning, inquiry, and literacy, students and teachers are encouraged to become effective users of current technology and research strategies. We support independent and collaborative learning while teaching patrons how to identify, locate, evaluate, and use both print and non-print resources. The enjoyment of literacy and love of reading is another important aspect of our program.

We would like to acknowledge and thank the Coast Salish people whose traditional territory North Vancouver School District resides on. We express our gratitude to the Squamish Nation and Tsleil Waututh Nation and we value the opportunity to learn, live and share educational experiences on this traditional territory.
