Media Center (Library)
The Media Center (Library) is located in the center of the school building. Children walk through the library to go to each classroom every morning. Since they have many opportunities to go through this hub, the library becomes a welcoming place for the students.
In Elementary School, the children have library time once every two weeks. The librarian reads books to the children from Kindergarten to third grade during library time. Our aim is to deepen the joy and interest in reading through the four years of reading by the librarian, and regulate reading habits of the children by increasing the time to read by themselves from fourth grade. Since a study center is a purpose of the media center, selecting resources which can be used for research and supporting class work are implemented.
As a library event, “Literacy Fortnight” is held every year. In the event, a book-rally and reading books to other children by interacting with different grades are held to encourage the children’s motivation to read.
