Bess Maxwell Library
Recess Clubs in the Library
Come to the library to join one of our recess time clubs. The library now offers a Lego club and book clubs during student recess time for grades 1-5. All clubs are optional.
Lego club will be held Tuesday-Thursday during morning recess. Students will be able to come play and create with Legos. Students are required to check-in with the activity monitor prior to coming to the library.
Book clubs are available for Grades 1-5 students during lunch recess. Grade 1 students will have the option to come on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Students will be picked up from the lunchroom and then go to the library to read a book. Only a select amount of students will be able to attend each day. For Grades 2-5 book club will be held on either Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday. Students will have an opportunity to sign-up for a book of their choosing from pre-selected titles. Each book club group will last one month and there will be a different book every month. Grades 2-5 students are expected to meet the librarian at the library during lunch recess after checking in with the activity monitor. Students will be able to keep the book as their own at the conclusion of the book. Please see here for Book Club Expectations.
