If your class is looking for some workspace to tackle a specific project, many of our libraries have rooms that can accommodate groups of 2-30 students. Contact your preferred location to inquire about the possibilities.
Is your class working on projects involving the history of Vaughan? The Civic Centre Resource Library houses VPL’s Local Studies collection, featuring numerous resources that could be of use. Examples include A History of Vaughan Township by G. Elmore Reaman, which tells the story of the settlement of Vaughan and contains references to numerous Vaughan residents and families. The collection also features the Illustrated Historical Atlas of York County from 1878, which contains a detailed map of Vaughan Township as well as the names of families that lived in Vaughan and their properties in 1878.
Teachers teaching in a Vaughan school can get a Teacher card to borrow library materials for classroom use. With this special membership, which expires at the end of the school year, you can enjoy extended loan periods for items that regularly circulate for 3-weeks only. You don’t need to worry about overdue fines! Contact your preferred location for more details.
The library is, of course, a great place to obtain books, movies, and information for school-related projects. With a library card, teachers and students have access to VPL’s selection of subscription databases (including Academic OneFile, Canada in Context, Gale Virtual Reference Library, STEM Village, and many more) from home 24/7.
