DECEMBER 2015

Merry Christmas from all of us at the Peak School Library!

We wish you all the happiness and cheer over the Christmas Holidays and hope that you and your families enjoy the time wherever you may be. We will be all geared up for a New Year of activities in the Library ... including Book Week in March which we are already planning for!


Warm wishes,


Liz, Rosheen and Susan

What is it REALLY like in the Library?

Do you ever wonder what it's actually like at Peak School Library? Here is some evidence of what goes on when students come in for a Library Lesson, or at Lunchtime Library when our doors are open from 12:45 to 1:15.

PEAK SCHOOL E-BOOKS

What's all this about eBooks?

About to get on a 10 hour long haul flight? Trekking across the Australian outback where there are no bookshops? Visiting Lapland where it's too cold to go outside? Or just going to Granny's and can't be bothered to get off the sofa? It doesn't matter where you are, if you have internet connection you can download a book from our eBook Library for free and read it on any device - computer, ipad, phone or e-reader. Over the Christmas Holidays, Peak School students are welcome to borrow, return and reserve eBooks.

How to access the Peak School eBook Library

All students in Years 3-6 have been shown how to access the eBook Library and many of them already have been borrowing over the past couple of weeks.
With just a click on the eBook button on the Library page on Planet Peak, students are sent to the eBook Library where there are over 200 titles to choose from. Click on the desired book, and if it is available (e.g. someone else is not reading it) just click the 'Borrow' button. If the book is unavailable, students can place it on 'Reserve' and when it is available they will receive a notification on their Peak School email account.

Students can use their Planet Peak username and the password can be found on the Library page of Planet Peak.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
