October 2011 Library News


Scholastic Book Club
Please remember that all your orders for books from the Scholastic Catalog should be in by Monday, October 24th.

School Photos: (2009 to 2011)
School Photos taken from 2009-2011 are now shelved in the library. They have been clearly marked according to event and date. Faculty, parents and students may order photos from the school photographer by sending him an email at [email protected], quoting the number of the photos you would like. Or, simply ask your librarian to help you find the photos you want to order.

New EFL/Beginning to Read Section
A new section has been added to the library to cater particularly to students whose first language is not English as well as students who are beginning to read and those who are improving their reading skills. The reluctant reader may also find his way to books by beginning in this section. The books are graded from Levels 1–4. Please remind your students/children to use these books to improve their reading skills. The librarians are always at hand to help them choose the right book.

A Good Read
We know that you are all very busy juggling work and family life. However, most of you, I’m sure, still enjoy getting lost in a book from time to time.  You may not have the time to go through all the books in the fiction section in the Pinewood Library to look for a good read. So, with this in mind, we are busy creating a section especially for you. In order to be shelved in this section, the book should be one you have read or would like to read.

Some of the titles already in this section are popular and controversial books such as: The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.

In order to build up this section and make it popular with parents and staff, we would really appreciate book donations/loans from members of staff and parents. We are looking particularly for contemporary fiction. Even if you don’t want to part with a book permanently, why not lend it to the library for a year? If it is lost, it will be replaced.

Books should be in English.
