We’ve made it through the first term of the school year! As you begin preparing for term two, you may notice that you’re finished with some of your LibraryWorld resources; particularly your LibraryWorld kits. We encourage you to return these resources or kits to the library. We have a hold list for our kits, and would love to be able to distribute them to as many families as possible this year. With our new number of free shipments (up to 6 RCOA-provided shipments per year), returning resources is better than ever!
If you are wanting to return items, you will find our library resource return procedure below. Vivian Roberts, Curriculum Resource Manager & Librarian K-9, has created a video that explains the steps. You can view the video here or click ‘Read On’ below to see the instructions in writing.
Returning Library World Resources to RCOA’s office:
- Find a box that the resources will fit in snuggly. You may find it helpful to keep the box that your books arrive in for shipping your resources back later in the year. Place your books in the box, and stuff newspaper in to fill up any loose areas.
- Using packing tape, tape up the box several times to ensure it is secure.
- Measure your box in centimetres for length, width, and depth, and write these measurements down. Weigh your books in kilograms and record the amount. You can weigh your box at any Canada Post location if you don’t have a scale that will work at home. We will also have scales available at the Community Class locations, so you could bring your box when dropping off your kids, and weigh it there. Bring your box back home with you! Please do not leave it at Canada Post or the Community Class. You will still need your shipping label.
- Email Vivian Roberts (firstname.lastname@example.org) the measurements for length, width, and depth (in centimetres), as well as the weight (in kilograms).
Vivian will create a Canada Post shipping label and email it to you. Print out the label, fold it in half with the address side showing, and tape securely onto the top of the box.
Drop your box off at the nearest Canada Post location for shipping back to the office.
