Melba Copland Secondary School operates two libraries, one on the High School Campus and one on the Senior Campus. Our teacher librarians curate dynamic, engaging collections to support students’ recreational literacy, and provide study and research support through library lessons. Students can borrow books from either library, and are able to access digital resources through Oliver and Clickview.
