Education Resources


Life-long learning is a pillar of the Library’s mission. We are here to support you as you embark on your educational journey. Click the links below to check out how the Library’s resources can be used to support the Ontario curriculum and your learning adventures! Services are open to teachers, home educators, and anyone who’s interested in learning.

Adventure Kits

Taking the learning outdoors is an excellent way to keep learners engaged. Explore the outdoors and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) activities by borrowing an Adventure Kit. Each kit comes with a selection of related books, and access to conservation areas managed by Quinte Conservation.

You can request more books or activities related to your selected kit by contacting jlane@peclibrary.org.

STEAM Programs

STEAM, or Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math, are incredibly complementary and we absolutely love developing programs that highlight these important life skills. Some examples of existing Library STEAM programs include:

  • 3D Modeling and Design
  • Coding
  • Robotics
  • Game Design

Bubble Storytime & Personal Shopping

Have you ever wanted to have the library to yourself? Book a time outside library hours to allow your children to explore and read without worrying that they will be close to others. You can bring your “bubble” for a storytime prepared just for you.

We also can curate a bag or surprise you with a selection of books to borrow. Select your own or call us with your preferences. Pickup in or outside the library - your choice!

Impressive Readers Society

Members are challenged to read as many books as they can each month and submit the titles they have read through our website. The member who has read the most will be announced as the winner on the last Saturday of every month via social media. The winner will have their name and photo published in the newspaper.
