    A Place to Wonder, Seek, Explore, Think, Share, and Dream

    The McGilvra Elementary Library is a place where both teaching and learning occur. The emphasis of the curriculum is to help students develop the skills needed to become lifetime library users, readers and information finders. The library provides opportunities for students to seek knowledge, acquire information, and experience the pleasures of the mind. It is a forum where students are encouraged to ask questions and express themselves.
