This could well be the last blog post of 2020! Unless we have urgent library news or a flash of inspiration that we have to share with you. But assume this is our “Happy, Healthy Holidays!” message.
Last week, the students enjoyed checking out books (“Really? We can check out books? Usually we can’t before the winter break!”), as well as coloring (and laminating!) their book marks. A few enthusiasts even came to the library on Friday (today) after school to color in some extras.
This afternoon, we’ve tidied and prepared the library so we are ready for our amazing students again in January! Take a look at the great new books coming out after the break (and more are coming. When we left school today, a batch of new books from AdLibris had just arrived):
We’ve put them up on our displays, ready for students to pick up, check out and read!
We’ve also freshened up our big notice board. It’s become a big reference point for the IB Learner Profile attitudes, literary genres, how to best pick a book, and our library routine & rules.
Now it is time to get your calendar, and take note of the following library events (if you want):
Remember to participate in the ISGR Winter Reading Challenge 2020! Students can start handing in their work on January 12th, and the latest on the 19th. Students get to pick a special book mark (which they’ve all seen this past week!) when they hand in their work. When we have “approved” it all (we’re looking for completed challenges that are done with care and attention. Take your time for it, no rush!), they will receive the one and only ISGR Winter Reading Challenge 2020 book bag! Made from 100% recycled fibres, printed with environmentally friendly ink.
Now we would like to wish you a restful, joyful and readingful Winter Break! We are looking forward to seeing you all in January, in good health and spirit!
And if you’d like, you can share in the comment section what you will be reading over the break with your child(ren)! Here’s my Winter Break reading fun:
Happy, Healthy Holidays!
Your Library Team,
Sophie & Fleur
