The National Library is invested in facilitating and advancing a meaningful, challenging and enjoyable learning experience that will instill students with knowledge and skills based on the study of the Library's collections, among others – an experience that will strengthen teachers, students, families and educational organizations. Our pedagogic philosophy is that the intelligent use of primary sources allows for the reinforcement and deepening of the connection between the students and their history, culture and heritage, and strengthens the skills and qualifications required for the 21st century student. The Library works to implement its educational goals via a number of significant actions – the establishment of a database of primary documents for teaching and learning, providing access to tools and activities, training teaching staff and educators and the establishment of informal educational programming for families and schools.
