Dear Parents,

As the school year ends, my thanks to all of you for supporting the WIS Library Media Center by buying books through the Scholastic International School Book Club. Your purchases will help to put new books in both our classroom libraries and in the Media Center.

This is also the time when many of you are packing to return to your home countries. When you do, you might find unfamiliar books in your home. It is possible that they belong to the WIS Library Media Center. Many of our books have a barcode and an ink stamp. If you find such books, please return them to either the Beyzyma Campus or Zielinskiego Campus Libraries. There will be no fines for any book that you return.Carrying Books 2.jpg

I will not issue individual students’ overdue lists because students love to check out books and then share their selections with each other. This is a very good practice for our students to develop, but it makes records-keeping in the Library very difficult. We hope that we will have a better way of keeping track of the students’ borrowed materials next year.

If you need to lighten your load of books as you travel, we will gladly accept donations of books in good shape for any reading level, DVD’s, CD’s, VHS’, and any electronic device that is in working order such as: music players, cell phones, laptops, ereaders, netbooks, etc.

I promise that all donations will be evaluated for use in our library collection as well as for use in the classrooms. The school can also issue you an official receipt as evidence of your donation for your tax records.

Above all, the staff and I wish you safe travels and a happy return to WIS in the fall.

Relax! Enjoy! And don’t forget to Read!
