Each class has regularly scheduled library time which is used to introduce children to excellent literature, to exchange books and for students to acquire library knowledge and skills. Students in Kindergarten and Grade One are allowed to sign out one book at a time. Students in Grades 2 through 6 may sign out more books depending on their grade level. The loan period is one week, but renewals are possible. Students are responsible for materials borrowed, and will be asked to pay for lost or damaged items.
Parents at BES are also able to have memberships at the school library in order to borrow books from the parent/professional section or borrow more books for their child (ren). Although there are specific times for signing out a book, the library is always open during school day.
We encourage all students to make use of the Banff Public Library for additional reading and research materials.
