Teacher with students in the classroom

Libraries & Educational resources

 

The Libraries at Rochambeau’s Primary and Secondary Schools are dedicated to learning, to encouraging reflection on cultural, social, and civic events, and to providing resources that broaden the knowledge base and skills of both students and faculty. 

Our Teacher-Librarians assist students of all ages and reading levels, taking into account school projects and individual interests. The libraries are also vibrant cultural centers that serve as a focal point for community events, student art exhibitions and meetings with guest speakers and professionals.

  • The Primary School Library (BCD, Bibliothèque Centre Documentaire) serves Preschool through Elementary school and is located at the Rollingwood campus (pre-k through 4th grade).
  • The Secondary School Library (CDI, Centre d'Information et de Documentation) serves both Middle and High schools and is located at the Forest Road Campus (5th-12th grade). A separate space in the CDI has been allocated to 5th grade students.

In both libraries, reading materials are available that cater for particular needs and reading abilities, such as books for children with dyslexia, large-type books, audio books, and literary resources in several languages (French, English, Arabic, Spanish and German).

Together, both libraries hold more than 20,000 books, including picture books, comic books, audio books, non-fiction, magazines, newspapers, early grade readers and novels both in print and online.
