It’s here again! From Monday 28th November until Friday 2nd December we will have the first of this year’s STA Used and New Book Sales!!
Do you have any books at home you don't read anymore and that are still in good condition? Please feel free to donate them, so that we can add the books to our Used Book Sale! You will collect house points and ALL proceedings from the sale will go to the Bangkok Refugee Centre. Boxes for donating books can be found inside the library.
We will also welcome Kinokuniya back! A perfect opportunity to buy some presents for the all important days in December!
Both book sales will be open every day throughout the week from 7.30am until 4pm.
See you there!
Baby & Toddler Group
We are looking for a new member to replace Ms Sara for our Baby & Toddler Group!
Soon it's time for Ms Sara's son to join our Nursery group at St. Andrews, so we’ll sadly say goodbye to her and will be looking for someone to replace her.
Do you have some time on Tuesday mornings from 8.15am until 9am? Do you love spending time with little ones? And do you know your English nursery rhymes or willing to learn them?
If you feel this is something for you, please send an email to the library.
Come and join us tomorrow! If you would like to bring your young child to attend this group please contact Astrid in the library, so that we can ensure that there are enough snacks and facilities to cater for everyone.
As previously mentioned, we are in the process of organising ALL our High School books per genre! I’m very pleased to say that we are in the final stages of amending our library system and students are now able to search books by genre.
Our final and also most time-consuming process is to physically change the shelves around, so that the books will also be displayed per genre. We are planning to do this before the start of Term 2. Will keep you updated!

High School Fiction (age 14+): Moth Girls
By: Anne Cassidy
Helplessly drawn like moths to the light, two girls go missing in an evocative and gripping tale . . .
They called them the Moth Girls because they were attracted to the house. They were drawn to it. Or at least that is what is written in the newspapers that Mandy reads on the anniversary of when her two best friends went missing. Five years have passed since Petra and Tina were determined to explore the dilapidated house on Princess Street. But what started off as a dare ended with the two girls vanishing. As Mandy's memories of the disappearance of her two friends are ignited once again, disturbing details will resurface in her mind.
