Topic Guides and Veteran’s Week

Notice anything new on the Library Services website? Topic Guides are now available! They include HCDSB digital resources, LRC resources and additional resources compiled to support popular topics that are covered in the classroom. From Lent and Easter to Earth Day, Mental Health and Wellbeing to STEAM, there are many topics to choose from.

Veteran’s Week in Canada takes place during the week leading up to Remembrance Day, November 5th to 11th, to “honour those who have served Canada in times of war, military conflict and peace.” Learn more about this week at Veterans Affairs Canada and find many resources to support this week, including books and kits from the LRC, eBooks, database articles, digital videos and additional resources, in our Remembrance Day & Veteran’s Week topic guide
