Elementary School Library

 

The Elementary School Library was established in order to meet the school’s educational goals through developing an evaluated and current collection of both print and electronic materials. The library aims at assisting the Elementary Faculty in their teaching process, but also at continuing to cultivate the love of books to Elementary Students the way it started at Pre-School and Kindergarten.

At the elementary school, the library acts as a means for students to turn from passive library visitors into active and independent library users. The library will help them take their first steps into research and information retrieval of both print and electronic materials, thus cultivating the art of critical thinking and the responsible use of information.

The above mentioned material is divided into two distinct main collections:

  • Teachers’ Collection, which includes books with specific academic content regarding the teaching experience and process, along with expensive and 3D books which are only used under the supervision of the teacher. In this collection you can also find books used by the animators of various elementary clubs.

  • Open Collection, which includes books that only elementary students and faculty can borrow directly.

Books under the above categories are classified according to their subject and the language they are written in.

 

Borrowing Rights for the above collections:

  • Elementary Faculty and Staff can borrow up to 5 books from the entire collection for up to 45 days;

  • Elementary Students can borrow up to 3 books for up to 14 days only from the Open Collection. The Teacher responsible for each class is allowed to check out books to his/her student.

  • Elementary Students' Parents or Guardians can borrow up to 3 books only from the "Dimitris & Aliki Perrotis Library" for 14 days. They may also use the aforementioned library’s reading areas.

 

Every library member needs to have a Library Card in order to be able to borrow library material. The Elementary students’ library card is issued in cooperation with the Dimitris and Aliki Perrotis library, and is automatically renewed every year.
