    Students will need to use our Destiny library online catalog (opens in a new window) to search our collection and use this form (opens in a new window) to request books. Please contact Carol Scrimgeour (cscrimgeour@ewsd.org) if you have any questions.

  • We are pleased to announce that we have an official EES Library Book Return box where families may now return library books. A huge thanks goes to our custodians Tony Smith and Brad Snow for their enthusiasm and carpentry skills. A few more details are still to come, such as a sign, but that will be soon. It is located under the roof overhang to the right of the front door, where there is a picnic table and a secondary entrance.
