Overdue Items

“Everything comes to him who waits but a loaned book.” – Frank McKinnney Hubbard

Please help us get our books returned or renewed!

The normal loan period for students is 3 weeks. We’re happy to renew books because most reading assignments go beyond this length of time. Please make a note in your online calendar/mobile device to note the due date.

All items must be in good standing if a student wants to take out another resource.

Weekly Reminders: A digital overdue notice will be sent out to your family email to remind you when your library resources are overdue. Once the overdue resource is returned or paid for, the student regains borrowing privileges

At report card time: An invoice will go to our Business Administrator. Books or payments MUST then be cleared with the office.


Windsor Library is proud of our many titles that fall under the theme of

Celebrating Diversity.

Our RAINBOW READS collection contains both fiction and non-fiction books celebrating diversity in race, religion, spirituality, sexuality and sexual identity. 



Windsor Library was proud to celebrate the inaugural national

"I Read Canadian Day" which celebrates the diversity and breadth of Canadian Literature for

young people.








Exploring Racism


On May 25, 2020, George Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis Police officer Derick Chauvin. Floyd was arrested for using a forged $20.00 bill, which later proved to be false. Officer Derick Chauvin pressed his knee on the right side of Floyd's neck for 8:46 minutes, while Floyd begged for his life. How to talk about something so traumatic?  For everyone, there may be huge emotions-grief, rage, disgust. It’s essential to acknowledge and hold space for that. Patience and presence here is very important. Listening and learning to the voices who strive to be heard is an important part of the healing and improving.
