A warm welcome back from your IST library team! We have an exciting year of reading and library programs planned. Here are some upcoming events for your calendar:
- Author/Illustrator visit: Matt Holm (Aug 31 & Sep 1). Holm is the illustrator for the popular Squish and BabyMouse books. Parents are welcome to attend his workshops! A final schedule will be coming soon.
- Scholastic Book Orders (order forms will go home this Friday. Please return the forms by August 25th).
- International Schools Library Week (Oct 16-20)
- BPIEC Book Fair (Oct 17-18)
- Book Character Dress Up Day (Oct 20). Start planning your costumes!
We are very lucky to have several volunteers who assist us with everything from ordering to shelving, but we are always happy to have more community members coming in to assist. If you are interested in becoming a library volunteer, please contact the IST librarians at Eleanor_Surridge@istianjin.net or Linnea_Simon@istianjin.net.
Birthday Book Club
We love to help students celebrate their birthdays! With the birthday book club, you help support the library’s book collection and give your child a special birthday memory. How does it work? The librarians select a new book for the library, based on your child’s interests. A nameplate will be put into the new book, and your child will be the first to check the new book out. The cost is 150 RMB. Please contact the librarians if you would like to celebrate your child’s next birthday with us!
