Libraries in the context of COVID
In order to respect the rules of physical distance, pupils can no longer visit libraries independently. If they no longer come to the books, it is the books that come to them, mainly through the class libraries. In secondary school, a limited number of students can go to the CDI to return or borrow books.
The BCD and the CDI also offer you the possibility of reserving documents online on the ESIDOC documentary portal and open their doors on certain Saturdays in order to welcome you in best conditions (Biblio-Drive).
Likewise, the BCD has prepared a PADLET of digital resources accessible in Mozambique to enable you to practice French at home: https://padlet.com/CDI_BCD/BCD_Enligne
BCD (Library for Kindergarten and primary).
The BCD (Library Document Centre – ‘Bibliothèque Centre Documentaire’) is a space open to the whole school community. It is located on the ground floor of the primary school building (between the two CE1 classes).
The BCD represents:
A gateway to the culture of the written word: from Kindergarten onwards, the library welcomes and accompanies pupils in the discovery of the world of books. A world apart where silence is golden but which also offers an opening to oneself and to the world.
A place of autonomy where primary school pupils can go during breaks to read, draw or play board games. Pupils can exercise their citizenship by learning to respect the rules of the place.
A place of learning where educational sessions related to reading and information research take place.
A place of project and experimentation where the pupil explores and trains their creativity, critical spirit and sensitivity.
The library is also open to parents who wish to borrow documents (between 12 noon and 1pm).
ESIDOC is the school’s documentary portal. This portal gives you access to the catalogue of the two libraries, enriched with a selection of digital content adapted to students.
Thanks to personal codes, available on the EDUKA platform or given directly to students, it is possible to reserve documents and leave comments on their reading.
The CAFEYN digital resource also gives you access to a wide selection of magazines and newspapers to read online from secondary school onwards
Finally, you can follow on ESIDOC all the projects of the library and the CDI (LATULU, Labo des contes, Babelio Challenge, NUMOOK Project etc…)!
