Info Investigators

Grade six students learn online research techniques while exploring the Calgary Public Library’s e-resources. This 60-minute, hands-on, curriculum-connected program takes place at your school.

Lest We Forget

Students learn about Canada’s military history by exploring the original files of WWI soldiers and nursing sisters from the Calgary area.

This program is for students in Grade 11 (can also be modified for Grade 5) and takes place at your school.
