The purpose of a school library

“There are a wide range of reasons to have a school library, and when it’s supported the difference it can make is really significant. It can be harder to capture because it doesn’t sit within a single subject, year group, or area of responsibility, but it can be felt across the community, in the very fabric of the school.”

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.
