Library Update

Posted: August 20, 2021

Welcome back to what we hope will be an exciting year ahead in the Library.

Our new Secondary Teacher Librarian is Akina Lam who joins us from KGV and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with her. You can reach Akina directly via email here. Our new Head of Library is the Primary Teacher Librarian, Leanne Sercombe, who can be reached here. The full team including our Library assistants, Hema, Niko, Cheryl and Sami are all here to encourage your child to have rich and diverse reading experiences both in person and via our extensive online resources.

Please visit our Library home page to explore our collections, view recommended book lists for each year level and keep abreast of Library promotions throughout the year.

If you want to access your child’s borrower records please see this information guide here. These records include titles that are borrowed from the Library as well as home reading books that are borrowed from the classrooms, Primary shared areas and Secondary subjects needed for coursework. Please return all books that were borrowed over the Summer period if you still have them at home.

A reminder that all students across each sector will need a zippered pouch or Library bag in order to borrow books from the Library. We are following the guidelines issued across ESF schools here, including thorough cleaning and a three-day quarantine period. We ask that you remind all students to return books promptly when finished so that we can increase the amount of books in regular circulation, especially the more popular titles.

Further information in relation to the Library policies and procedures can be found in the Parent and Student handbook. Contact library@dc.edu.hk with any further questions.
