Our Library

Welcome to our Library! A magical world filled with books!

 

The Library of Psychico College Elementary School is located in Kantza, Attica and is open during the school’s normal operating hours.

 

It is a lending library, integrated in the school curriculum and serves approximately 1,000 students aged 6 – 12, the faculty and all other members of the school staff.  Its main objectives are to promote recreational reading and to familiarize students with the use of the Library, as well as with research skills and approaches to tackling projects and schoolwork. Its ultimate goal is to cultivate future book-lovers and individuals with critical thinking skills.

Aside from recreational reading and the borrowing of Greek and foreign books, children attend Information Literacy classes in the Library aimed at helping them to develop research, assessment, identification and information synthesis skills that  maximize use of the Library’s printed and electronic resources. 

 

The Library participates in the Primary Years Program (PYP) with corresponding thematic modules and Love of Reading Programs aimed at raising children’s awareness of books and reading.  At the same time, students are afforded opportunities to attend specially selected presentations and book promotions by writers, illustrators and other professionals in the Library.  

 

The Library awaits you for a journey into the world of knowledge, exploration, imagination and fun…
