SCHOOL PROJECTS AND ASSIGNMENTS
Teachers and educators are encouraged to let the library know which topics are being set as assignments and projects. The staff will then locate suitable books, and place them on a theme table, as well as restricting the loan of such books. This prevents the first learner coming into the library from borrowing all the books on the topic, leaving none for the rest of the class.
Staff will not do the actual assignment for the learner, but will provide assistance with locating relevant information, and guidance on how to use certain reference sources such as dictionaries, atlases and encyclopedias. If time permits, staff will also retrieve information from reputable sites on the internet and from the pamphlet files in the library.
Schools are welcome to contact the libraries to arrange orientation visits for their classes. During such visits the learners are introduced to the library and all its resources, and are shown how to retrieve information from reference sources.
