Welcome to Rainy River District

Public Library and eBook Initiative

This project provides full library access to all Kindergarten to Grade 12 students of the Rainy River District.

Participating libraries of the Rainy River District Library Cooperative include the Atikokan Public Library, Emo Public Library, and Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre.

The project is a result of the Rainy River District School Board’s school library reinvestment by trustees, which included $30,000 for ebooks. After many months of planning, the District Library Cooperative was formed to partner with District school boards. There was a common goal, to enrich the lives of young people. The libraries combined their ebook resources and received funding from the school boards and education institute. As a result, students are now able to access a vast and varied collection of ebooks. The ebooks and all other library resources are available for classroom learning and for use at home. All Kindergarten-12 students are invited and encouraged to explore the libraries’ collections for information, research or fun.

If you require more information, please contact your child’s school principal or your public library.
