VLC: Home

The VLC is much more than an "online library." It provides Information Literacy, Digital Literacy, Media Literacy, and Digital Citizenship resources, as well as technical help, and reliable information for student research and work.

Welcome back to a new school year!

As everyone begins to explore and adapt to the variety of in-class and remote learning venues we will be experiencing..... don't forget to look after yourself with

health & wellness tips and strategies.

A SPECIAL NOTE FOR TEACHERS: Many of the digital resources that were provided over the COVID-19 school closure are no longer available for free access.  As well, a number of resource subscriptions previously funded by the Ontario Ministry of Education have expired (eg. BookFLIX) and have been removed from the VLC Games and Databases.
