​​​​​​​Welcome to the DWE Library!

Our English Teacher-Librarian is Mrs. Erin Semashkewich and our French Teacher-Librarian is Mme Colleen Wilson.  Our Library Assistant is Mrs. Gina​ Mazza. Our goal is to foster a love of reading in our students, through regular visits to the library, participation in library programs and an understanding of how information is organized and used through resource-based instruction. This year our library is open 8:30-9:00 am every Tuesday and Thursday morning, as well as, after school 2:30-2:45 pm every day except Fridays for anyone wanting to exchange books outside of their regularly scheduled class times.  Both students and parents are encouraged to exchange books after school.
