Back to Business As Usual
I would say back to business as usual in the Secondary library but, of course, things will never be quite the same! Everyone is still tremendously excited by the wonderful facilities we have. We encourage you to keep visiting and make the most of our excellent new library.
We are not starting to get excited about the Primary rennovation too. A Heads Up that the Primary Library will be closed for the first week of the third term whilst we pack and move to our temporary premises. For term three we will set up in the Visitors Room for the Early Years and the top of the Year 5.6 block for the other part of the Primary Library. During this time we will continue to lend out fiction books but the non-fiction books will be packed away, so please do make sure that you borrow any non-fiction you need for the third term soon.
As you know we are always trying to improve the services we offer and we are pleased to share with you details about a new online newspaper that we are trialling.
I have set up a three month trial for www.newsacademic.com. It is full of topical issues and very user friendly. The login is at the top left corner
Email Address: library firstname.lastname@example.org
Do let me know your thoughts about whether it would be good to buy a subscription to this resrouce once the trial has ended.
We have had a great day today with Khun Pearl paying 1M a special visit during which she both sang and read to the class. We have also been trialling our ipads and the students have had a wonderful time experimenting with them.
Another exciting week lies ahead, with the opening of the cross campus staffroom located behind the library. From tomorrow teachers will be able to borrow the Professional Development Books from tomorrow which will be located in there.
Have a great week everyone.
Ms Sal Flint
