SFBS Library - KeyStage 1 & 2

The British School Library is one of four libraries at SFS, and provides access to a broad range of information resources to ensure that students and staff are effective and responsible users of ideas and information. The love of children's literature is nurtured by regular author/illustrator visits from both Korea and abroad throughout the school year.

Our facility houses a print and multi-media collection of approximately 15,000 items with interlibrary access to the Middle School/Key Stage 3 and the High School as well as the Elementary School Library.

Goals

  • To provide access to supporting materials and services to students, faculty and families of the SFS / SFBS community
  • To provide resources as needed in the classroom to achieve the outcomes of the British National curriculum
  • To promote literacy and the love of reading
  • To instruct students in basic library skills and to assist them in making effective use of information in various formats
