Cold nights. Sunny days. Crisp white snow. A perfect recipe for curling up with a good read. If you haven’t already been there to check it out, head to the latest addition to the ESA Library Online: the ESA Library Pinterest site. Find out what’s new in the Library. Organised by category, each entry includes a picture of the cover, a brief note about the book, and one or more links out to book reviews, or other commentaries as the case may be. Many thanks again to our fabulous Library volunteers. Hardworking, knowledgeable and dedicated, they help make the Library the happening place it is. Heading into the last half of the year, we have some senior students who are looking to cut back on their hours as they buckle down on the road to post-secondary education. This means that we have some openings for new student volunteers at some times during the week. If you, or someone you know, are interested, drop by the Library for a chat and we’ll see what we can do to build you into the new volunteer schedule. February brings Black History Month, Valentine’s Day and Freedom to Read Week. Watch for a display featuring Staff and Student picks for Valentine’s Day reading. Friends of ESA from the Thomas Fisher Rare Books Library at the UofT will be here at the end of February to help us celebrate Freedom to Read Week. They will be workshopping students in both the Philosophy and Media Studies classes on the morning of Tuesday February 25th. We have room for a few extra visitors if anyone is interested. Contact Ms. Wray in the Library, or via e-mail at enid.wray@tdsb.on.ca. etobicoke school of the arts The Stack Map After moving the stacks the signage has finally been completely re-installed. If you’re wondering where to find that book you’re looking for, check the signage on each bay of books. Or... check this NEW MAP of the Library collection.
