Exciting News & Updates from the Media Center


Even though campus has been closed to our students, the Media Center team has been staying busy updating our Media Center's resources and renovating the physical space. Whether that has been spearheading the remote borrowing service or rearranging shelving, our Media Center is more active than ever. "We were able to use this precious time to prepare an active, dynamic and closer Media Center to our community. Our objective is to offer a diverse, robust and innovative user oriented service", explains Media Center Director, Chloé de Vicente.

Please review the following updates from the Media Center below:

  • More than 700 books borrowed in the remote borrowing service to date.
  • Reorganization of the First Floor (EYS and ES): This first stage begun in August and culminated at the beginning of September with the optimal reshelving of some collections that were too tight. The Reference material section was relocated to the entry and a Spanish corner was created.
  • Reorganization of the Second Floor (MS and HS): The work began in September and was focused on the redistribution of spaces and shelves, allowing the team to redefine circulation flows, order of collections and generate optimal and diversified study spaces. This included the creation of the Fiction Spanish Corner for Fiction and NonFiction Books, the reorganization of the Middle School Fiction and Non Fiction Collections to offer a confortable reading and study area, the creation of the Reference Section for reference books, magazines and yearbooks (the oldest magazine that the Media Center has is from 1969!), and the relocation of the professional collection to the circle space study room and the biography collection to the entry of the floor to highlight the collection.

*COMING SOON* New read alouds with a new technique called Kamishibai, a Japanese theatre for storytelling.
