SIXTH FORM LIBRARY SERVICES

The Sixth Form Library Services staff is delighted to welcome you to our school and our new library area. Our library is open during school hours, every day, from Monday to Friday. Students and teachers are welcome to enjoy our peaceful environment for study, reasearch or leisure.

One ot the library services' top priorities is helping the institute's students to acquire new and second hand textbooks at the best competitive prices on the market. This ensures that each student will ahve his textboks at the start of the term. In collaboration with various subject teachers, the library offers students different study packs relevant to their course of studies.

The library offers options for students to browse through geopgraphical, business, environmental, science and social sciences periodicals. Through the library's website, teaching staff and students can access our school library catalogue, make advanced searches, request books, make reservations and renew loans. Each student is entitled up to three items for three weeks in a row with the possibility of further renewals. We are here to help you achieve your academic dream.

Our Library aims to be a resource of information, open to ideas and imagination and an instrument of cultural and educational development. It fosters a love of reading and a climate of lifelong learning to enrich the lives of students and teachers. It offers spaces for all to meet and connect, to learn and to teach and to inspire creativity.
