It’s Exam Season

While it is a stressful time for senior students as their IB Exams have begun, in the library it is a really interesting time. We make space in the library for silent study and the breakout rooms are always booked with students there using the whiteboards.  There are also the classes coming in to finish up research projects, like our grade 9 students who are doing research on ecological projects.  The MS students are all coming in and getting books for the end of the year. It is just buzzing in the library right now. 

Also we started publishing out a Digital Citizenship tool each week in the Monday Morning Message out to students. It is also in the Tech Recommendation section of this bulletin. To help draw interest I am copying the information here now too. 

A Cool Opportunity!

A couple of weeks ago I sent. out information about having a book club meeting in the Main Library. This is exciting as we are reading a book that will likely be one of the IB English Texts next year for Language and Literature. We are reading Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doer. Below is the informational flyer for the event. We have about 20 spots we could fill. 

 If you are interested there are a few steps:

  1. Get a copy of the book Cloud Cuckoo Land and read, read, read – it is WONDERFUL! (You can get it at Kinokuniya Amazon, and the Audio is available on Audible)
  2. Complete an ATK test with Negative Results
  3. Submit the Appointment form for ISB Linked Here
  4. Be ready to join us for a meeting on May 5 from 12-1:00 in the Main Library

Have a wonderful weekend,

Your Friends and the Main Library
