About The Mabin School Library

The Mabin School Library is staffed by our Librarian and contains a fully catalogued and well rounded selection of books for all grades.
 Primary grades learn to use the library during weekly visits; Junior grades use the library to practice their research skills and to extend their individual reading interests in a quiet, resource-filled space.

Parents are welcome to drop by the library before or after classes and are encouraged to browse the collection and borrow books. We have a growing collection of resources for families which complement the learning that happens at the school.

Look for the Friends of the Mabin Library table at the September BBQ. Meet our librarian and learn more about the library and opportunities to volunteer. The Friends of the Mabin Library is a parent group working to strengthen and promote the library. It organizes events throughout the year and supports programs that connect children and their families to books.

The Mabin Birthday Book Program

The Mabin Birthday Book program enhances our collection, and gives each family the opportunity to donate a book in honour of their child’s birthday. When a child has chosen a book, parents are encouraged to come into the classroom to share it with the class. The book is then brought to the library where it is catalogued, and inscribed with a bookplate placed on the inside front cover.

Samara Walbohm, Mabin parent and co-owner of TypeBooks, has generously offered a 20% discount to Mabin families.
