Have a nice holiday – Schöne Ferien!

Die Schulbibliothek wünschtallen schöne und erholsame Sommerferien!

Bleiben Sie gesund, rücksichtsvoll und fröhlich – und natürlich: lesen Sie viele gute Bücher!

Wie jeder weiß, stehen wir virtuell auch in den Sommerferien zur Verfügung, denn auf soraapp.com können unsere Schüler*innen viele tolle E-Books und Hörbücher finden (und auf iServ/News die Anleitung).

Damit alle, die noch Gebühren bei der Bibliothek zu bezahlen haben auch fröhlich sein können, werden wir – als kleinen Beitrag zur Entlastung in diesen Zeiten – ALLE ausstehenden Gebühren erlassen.

**********************

The School Library is wishing you nice and restful holidays.

Stay healthy, considerate, friendly and cheerful – and for sure: read many good books!

As everybody knows, we are available virtually during summer as well on soraapp.com, where our students can find many great eBooks and audiobooks (and the instructions on iServ).

To make sure, that also those who still need to balance fees to the library may also be cheerful, we will cancel ALL owing overdue fees – as a little contribution to a relief at these days.

So imporant, not only these days!

Critical thinking is a key skill in media and information literacy, and the mission of libraries is to educate and advocate its importance.
