Welcome to the Barr Colony Online School Library!

During our time away from the library, Mrs. Rousson has put together a list of online resources you are encouraged to try from home. They are all great ways to continue reading until we are able to be back together again. Please check with your teacher(s) to see which they recommend for you.

If you have any questions, or are looking for suggestions on what to read, please know that Mrs. Rousson is still available to be reached by email at stacey.rousson@lpsd.ca

To visit the websites below you just need to click on the image.

Happy Reading!
