The Festival du livre will end at 3:00 pm on Thursday.

Students who purchase books will be entered into a draw, and the winner will win free books for him/herself as well as his/her classroom.

By purchasing books at the Festival du livre, families will be supporting the Bastion Library, as a percentage of the sales will be credited back to the Library, allowing us to purchase books and add to our French collection.  Thank you very much for you support!!

A BIG thank you goes to our Teacher-Librarian, Ms. Murrells-Allaway, for organizing this wonderful event!!
