Welcome to the MEFIS Library


The library staff extends a very warm welcome to all members of the MEF IS community. The MEF IS library provides curriculum support and meets the recreational reading needs for the whole school from Preschool to Grade 12. The up-to-date online library resources are also offered to encourage a love of reading and enjoyment of books. Our hope is for families to benefit from the myriad of resources available within our library and online collection. Library hours have been extended to accommodate families before and after school. We encourage parents to come by and visit. Please do not hesitate to contact us if help is needed.
