Requesting Library Books With Our On-Line Form
Keeping our community connected with great reads is important to all of us in the AISL Library!
To that end, please keep requesting books using this on-line book request form. The process is simple: fill in the form by Friday at 09:00, and then collect your books the same day between 12:00-18:00 by the guard post where secondary students enter campus. The link to the form is also on the virtual library landing pages.
We also have other great tools to keep our students reading!
Epic! eBooks for K-8
For middle school students, the on-line ebook library Epic! is fantastic. The display is attractive and it's very easy to use. In addition to eBooks, there are also videos and books that can be read to the user ("Read to Me's"). Epic! is free to students during the school day (Central Africa Time zone). To have the complete functionality of Epic, for just $5.99 a month parents can activate a subscription ($72 for the year). This provides unlimited access and you can have more than one child on the same account. I have a subscription for my own children and they love it!
Tales2Go Audio Books
For audio listening, we have our fabulous Tales2Go audio book collection, with more than 10,000 audio books and new ones added every month. Every student at AISL has a unique log-in (the app has a nicer interface than desk top). The log-in pattern is as follows:
User name: graduation year + first initial + last name (example: 2027jsmith)
When first using, select "schools & institutions" (not "individuals").
Our middle school students are familiar with both Epic and with Tales2Go, but it's always worth promoting again.
RivetedLit by Simon Teen: Free eBooks & eBook Excerpts for High School Students
For our high school-aged students looking for eBooks (and all other YA fans in our community!), the monthly selections on RivetedLit by Simon Teen are fantastic. The monthly offerings are a combination of both free excerpts and some ebooks available in full. The selections will change again on 28 February.
As always, if you are looking for any recommendations or need assistance, reach out to any member of our library team!
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
