New ebooks & audiobooks available – Overdrive/Sora

Did you know we have ebooks and audiobooks for kids from age 2-99? The easiest way to get them is to download Sora, Overdrive’s student reading app. It works on all smart phones AND laptops! You simply type Nanjing International School to find our school in the app, then login using your ID number as both your username AND password. Students and teachers are ready to go…parents need to stop by the library to request an account. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Of course, you can always stop by the downstairs primary library with any questions or concerns!

Self-checkout prototype in the secondary library

We are going to try self-checkout upstairs in the secondary library, where the student, teacher, or parent checks out their own books using a laptop with instructions next to it. Laptops for searching for books are always available. If you want to bring your class for checkout, let us know ahead of time (or on your way) and one of us will be able to assist you upstairs.

 

We will still close the secondary library during break and lunch until we have made the “big move” and become one gloriously united library.

 

Please give us your feedback on how things are going in the library and what we can do to improve!

Interested in co-sponsoring PYP Student Council?

Anyone interested in co-sponsoring the PYP Student Council with me? We have a rep from each class in grades 2-5, so 12 students all together. We try to meet once a week during lunch, and we help with assemblies, the PYP Variety Show, and coordinating spirit days.

Online Resources for teachers

Teachers,

Here is a link to the online resources we subscribe to. Individual grades and/or departments might have additional subscriptions that are not listed. Usernames & passwords are included. Please do NOT share this link with students…they do not get access to the same things we do and will get their own link.

If you are working on professional development (university) courses, I highly recommend using EBSCO and JSTOR for research.

Overdrive/Sora – ebooks for all!!!!!!

We temporarily have 2 libraries!

Our (new) secondary library is upstairs in the cafeteria, and holds books for 6-12 grades and adults, including foreign language books. Checkout is available during the school day and after school, but the upstairs library is closed during break and lunch.

 

Our primary library is in it’s regular location, and holds books for our younger students in English and various foreign languages, as well as our parenting books, travel guides, DVDs for parent and teacher checkout, and professional collection for teachers.

Summer library books are now due!

Students, teachers, and parents: don’t forget to return your library books that you checked out in June! They are now due, and overdue emails will be sent out Thursday morning to remind you. Avoid my emails by returning your books!

Where is the library?!?

Our primary library (grades PK-5) is still in the old library space, and will be until November or December (more info will be sent as we get closer to the big move). The primary library still has tables and chairs for studying, and it will be open to students during break and lunch. The primary resource room is still in the back of the library office (more info sent later).

 

Our books for MS/US fiction and nonfiction and adult fiction (including adult foreign language) are now upstairs in the cafeteria mezzanine right by the elevator. An aide will be up there if you want to bring your classes for checkout, but it will be closed to students during break and lunch (until we move the primary library upstairs).

 

I will be mostly down in the primary library if you need to find me.

Come on, students…turn those books in!

Summer library book checkout

Students, parents, and staff members can check out library books over the summer if you will be returning to campus in August. I would suggest checking those books out as soon as possible, since we are beginning to box up the secondary portion of the library this week to move to our temporary location for next year.
