Promote Information Literacy

The Mikes Kelemen High School Library is one of the biggest in Covasna County.

About our activity in 2006:

We participate annually in International School Library Day, giving us an opportunity to share information about our school library with others. (http://www.iasl-slo.org/isld2005j.html)

Once a month I organize an American Corner with Americans who live in Covasna County. We develop themes based on American Culture. Through this project, we have received valuable books which are popular with our readers.

I use the International Children’s Book Day as an opportunity to create a display and talk about and books to borrow which are too good to be hidden on a shelf.

Although initially I had only two computers in my school library, I tried to develop cooperative projects with other school libraries around the world. The most extensive thus far was an internet contest (a kind of scavenger hunt) between our library and McPherson Middle School Library/Clyde/Ohio/USA (The Revolutionaires of 1848 in the American Civil War, IASL Newsletter, volume 34, nr 3, 2005).

Now we had a common project with Stephens County Middle School /Toccoa /Georgia /USA based on Christmas customs of our countries.

These projects gave my students an opportunity to share and compare, as well as communicate with others their own age.

I continually strive to engage my students in school library activities, giving them many opportunities to be active participants in locating, evaluating, organizing, and presenting exciting projects, as well as offer the best services possible, because there is no doubt that the development line of a school is determined by a good and competitive library, which is ready to respond to any challenge.
