Books for International Mother Language Day 2018

February 19th, 2018 · No Comments

In observance of International Mother Language Day on February 21, the ISB libraries have displayed books in several languages represented on the ISB student body. To see the books, please visit the MS/HS Library or the ES Hub. 



Occasionally, community members express interest in donating books in various languages to the libraries. If you wish to do so, kindly speak with a librarian first about what titles suit the libraries’ needs. 

Whether you read a book from ISB, a local bookstore, or your home bookshelves, reading is a wonderful way to celebrate International Mother Language Day!
