Another Pro for eBooks

Why sometimes eBooks are better… Knowing, that eBooks does not smell like real books, that the feeling to touch an eBook-Reader is not the same as to touch the cover of a nice hardcover book with a linen cover: In some cases, eBooks are the better choice. Here we are with an example: To support our new students (and their parents) from the Ukraine, we were able to buy some new eBooks in Ukrainian language, some in Ukrainian and English – within a day or two. Our students can download them without any cost on a smartphone or tablet, after installing the SoraApp. The SoraApp is to be found at any App Store or to be used as a Desktop App. We also produced an instructional video: How to download an eBook using the SoraApp. For sure, we are on the way to buy some more non-fiction on the history and geography of the Ukraine in English and German language – also as printed versions. All these books are to be found on the main page of our Library Catalogue.

What SYNC Participants Said about the 2020 Program

„Helping me through a rough time—being read to is the highest form of comfort“

„I never thought that I would come to enjoy reading from an audiobook. It’s so cool because I can do other stuff like folding clothes while listening to a book. Thanks, SYNC, for the experience.“

„My favorite part about SYNC is getting and listening to books I wouldn’t have ever chosen for myself. It expands my world view and my reading view, which is excellent.“

The Corona Peek

eBooks are more and more important for schools – especially in times of distance learning and hygiene concerns. But that doesn’t mean that printed books are out of bounds!

School libraries do their best to serve student’s needs – digital and analogue -, even when school (or library) is closed. Have a look at our reading statistics! Since September they are back in school. Now they can browse the “real” shelves in their School Libraries again.

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.

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.
