G6 and G7 students went on a field trip to the local library “Stadtbücherei”. They had an introduction to the library section for students and learned how to check out and return books.
The students, whose parents had filled in a membership application form in advance, received their free library cards and were able to check out their first books right on the spot.
They enjoyed exploring the different sections of German books, English books and even books in their own mother tongue.
The colorful and comfy reading spaces invited them to immerse in their chosen books. The afternoon has definitely been a fun step towards developing literacy and the pleasure of reading!
