The Simcoe County District School Board has more than 100 school libraries, and there are approximately 1.5 million items in the current resource collection. All schools have a full-time teacher-librarian. At Chris Hadfield, our Teacher-Librarian is Mrs. Ferreira.

Teacher-librarians work with students and staff to develop collections that are engaging for students and staff. The goals are to provide relevant resources for learning, instruction and reading enjoyment.

Teacher-librarians work with students, staff, administration and families to support and improve student literacy and academic achievement.
