Library Announcements:

There are library resources: research resources, games, and online news resources organized for the Bradbury Community on Only2Clicks: http://www.only2clicks.com/pages/BradburyLibrary/


Fantastic news:

The Bradbury Library will now be loaning Y2-Y6 5 books at a time. Please discuss this with your child. We do not want children carrying too many heavy books in their bags. Children do not have to borrow 5 books, they may choose how many they borrow.


Please welcome Ms. Connie Leung to the library. She is our new library assistant.

PANDA BOOK AWARD PROGRAM:

We are running a Panda Book Award program for children. There will be a primary and intermediate book list. Children are encouraged to read books through February and they will have an opportunity to vote to select their favourite book.

WELCOME PARENTS!

Parents are welcome to borrow up to 10 books at a time for a month at a time from the library! Please come visit!

Mother Tongue Language Guest Readers:

We really enjoyed welcoming parent and staff guest readers last year to Bradbury Library. Parents and staff members shared a book in their Mother Tongue. We will continue welcoming parents and staff to visit the library on Wednesdays during Y1-3 and Y4-6 lunch times to read books aloud in their mother-tongue. Please email me to book a time and indicate your interest: librarian@bs.esf.edu.hk Remember that you are welcome to bring your own books to share or use library mother tongue language books as available.

Volunteers are needed NOW in Bradbury School Library:

Official volunteer working tea will be on September 2nd, 8am-12pm, please email if you are able to help during this time, it is not necessary to stay for four hours. librarian@bs.esf.edu.hk


The library needs numerous volunteers to support adding hundreds of new books to the library and additionally help shelving the 300 books per day that are returned by students and staff. We would appreciate support of volunteers who could provide 15-30 minutes of their time before or after they volunteer in the classroom in addition to volunteers who are willing to volunteer for 1-2 hours per day. We would provide volunteers with training and would appreciate any support provided. Thank you!

BOOK EXCHANGE IN THE LIBRARY!

The Bradbury Library is running a special second-hand book exchange area for students to use.

Do your children have too many books on their shelves? Would you like to make room for new ones? Perhaps take time with your children to think about clearing out books they have grown out of or no longer enjoy, send your children to the library with the books to swap them!
