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.“

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 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, 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.
