Library News

  • Did you know that the William Reid Library houses nearly 14,000 books and audiovisual items?
  • Presently,we are doing inventory of our collection and preparing the Library for automation. That means that sometime this fall, your children will be scanning their books like at the public library.
  • The process involves inventory reconciliation, adding items with no records, deleting items no longer cosidered viable in our collection (this may mean the book is falling apart, or that it contains info no longer appropriate for our children, or long out of date), preparing books for attaching the bar-codes, matching books to bar-codes and taping the bar-codes to the books.
