Re: E.G. Wahlstrom Library 

Hello to all our EGW families and students: 

First of all I would like to say how much I am missing each and every one of our students. 

I can’t wait to have all of you back in the library and hear what you have been doing to stay busy. I really want to know what you have been reading! 

Some of you have been reading eBooks and that’s wonderful. The instructions on how to borrow on SORA are available below if you need some help. We are now working on how to get physical books into your hands! This is the process we will use for as long as possible. 

Send me an email at jshihinski@hpsd.ca letting me know what books you would like to sign out. 

You can sign out up to 3 fiction and 3 nonfiction books at a time for a total of 6 books. If you are not sure what to take, leave me a phone number and I can help you choose some awesome books. I can also be reached at the school 780-849-3539. If you are just not sure what you want I can choose some books for you! 

Pick up books from the school instructions: 

Once the books are ready to go you will receive an email or phone call to set up a time for pick up at the school. Returning books will work the same way only you will call to schedule a drop off time. 

Here is what we are doing to ensure safety for you and our staff: 

All items leaving the school will be wiped down with a soapy solution or a disinfecting wipe. They will then be placed into a bag for pick up. Once the books are ready they will then be quarantined for 5 days. Items coming in will also be quarantined for 5 days before being touched by staff. Pick up and drop offs will be scheduled to ensure social distancing and your safety.
