Learning & Literacy

Learning & Literacy, in partnership with Barriere Elementary School has developed a library of books for parents.

Feedback from parents, teachers and health professionals led to this library being created.

The books are located in the library at the elementary school, and deal with sensitive health issues such as talking to your children about keeping private parts private and what are private parts.

There is a “Boy’s Body Book” that deals with how a boys’ body changes, and there is a girls book “Period” that deals with what changes a girls’ body will go through. “Anger is Okay, Violence is Not”, and “It’s Not The Stork”, are a few more examples of what you will find on the shelves.

Any adult can go to the school library, fill out the form to get a library card and check out these books.

You do not have to have a child in school.

To ensure this library is effective, we ask parents to provide feedback to the librarian, or to Barb Gordon (250-672-2111 or email on the books and let us know if there is any other subject area that we could provide books for.

All the books have been funded by Raise A Reader funds.
