The libraries offer activities all year round. We encourage participation from students, teachers and parents. If you’d like to join us, please contact Head Librarian Laura Sanders.
LCC Reads is an annual high school activity that runs throughout the year. In March, the LCC Reads Committee, made up of students, teachers and the head librarian, votes on a novel to be read by all high school students over the summer. Students will then discuss the novel in their English classes, culminating in a final student assembly in November. Immediately afterwards, students and teachers can begin nominating their favourite novels for the following year.
Students in grades 7 and up are welcome to join the LCC Reads Committee or nominate a novel.
Our 2019 LCC Reads title is The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer.
Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books is an annual QAIS competition that encourages students to read different genres. Student teams are quizzed on the content of ten pre-selected Young Adult novels. The winning team then participates in a Final Battle against other QAIS schools in April.
Battle of the Books is open to students in grades 7 and up.
Book Talks & Treats
Book Talks & Treats is a Junior School book club open to students in grades 4 to 6. Students meet in the library once a month at lunchtime with their parents, teachers and the head librarian. They do an activity based on the books they’ve read and share treats.
The LCC Libraries’ largest event is our annual book fair held every May. Two local bookstores come to campus to sell the books on the summer reading lists for each grade along with other popular titles. Students and parents can donate books to the libraries from our donation table or purchase second-hand books. Fifteen percent of all sales go directly to the libraries.
