Last year presented unprecedented challenges and in an effort to return to normality, as soon as the quarantine was lifted in Lo Barnechea the Media Center was able to provide the first-ever Remote Resource Borrowing to our community adapting to all the safety measures. Nido families were encouraged to better enjoy their time at home while reading books and balancing student's time with screens. The Remote Borrowing Service has given a smart solution for the community to access our books and stay engaged in reading for pleasure and their studies and to provide an escape through the world of books.
Please note that starting the 2020-2021 second semester the service will resume on February 22nd and, conditions permitting, more drop off and pick days will be available. The Media Center team will also aim in the next semester and year to further invigorate and stimulate MS and HS students' reading habits.
Please review below a summary of the 2020 Remote Borrowing Service.
