The Simcoe County District School Board has more than 100 school libraries, and all schools have a full-time teacher-librarian. There are approximately 1.5 million items in the current resource collection.

Teacher-librarians work with students and staff to develop collections that are engaging for students and staff. The goals are to provide relevant resources for learning, instruction and reading enjoyment.

Teacher-librarians work with students, staff, administration and families to support and improve student literacy and academic achievement.

Which book should I read next? (List and text created by D. Brown.)

Good Reads ~ Check out the genre-specific lists or your friends' bookshelves, rate and review books, and create a wish list of future reads.

What Should I Read Next? ~ WSIRN? will generate a list of related books and authors based on a database of over 80,000 titles and more than one million reader recommendations.

Which Book? ~ This site is amazingly accurate! This site offers suggestions based on your mood -- gradient scales ranging from "Optimistic" to "Bleak," "Larger than life" to "Down to earth," and "Expected" to "Unpredictable," among others, let you set the tone of your next big (or small) read -- or on character, plot, and/or setting preferences.

Library Thing ~ Library Thing lets you create a profile and view what your friends are reading, as well as browse their substantive catalog. Join one of the online discussion groups, or check out the more-or-less-live message board; a social and active book network awaits!

Gnooks ~ This site is not exclusively for books -- it also contains categories for movies and music -- but the literature map is a distinct feature.
