School library programs in Burnaby enable students to become literate, independent, life-long learners.

Burnaby School District has strong, vibrant library programs in all of its elementary and secondary schools. Teacher-librarians and teachers collaborate to plan and teach learning activities which draw on a variety of appropriate learning resources.

Burnaby’s school libraries, including the Burnaby Online School and Fraser Park Secondary, provide an array of materials in all formats to promote literacy development, to support the K-12 curricula, to offer recreational reading materials, and to provide resources for school projects and assignments.

On-line library catalogues provide access to print, media, and electronic resources in English, French and Mandarin. All Burnaby students and parents can access World Book Online from home and school – log in information is available from each school’s teacher-librarian.

Burnaby is also proud to house the Provincial Resource Collection for the B.C. School for the Deaf Outreach Program.
