The H.J. Sabbagh Library
The H.J.Sabbagh Library is located at the second floor of the Learning Commons and allows Middle School and Academy students to find and use the reading resources they need to develop love for reading and the ability to research interesting topics.
Reading is the gateway skill to almost everything. It is crucial to lifelong learning, to acquiring knowledge, to writing and even to enjoying our lives. Researching helps us learn, achieve our goals and have fun; from planning a trip to developing our passions.
In the Sabbagh Library students may browse our large book collection (one of the biggest English language book collection in Greece) or search our online databases on their own, with a friend or with the help of the librarian. They may find books for their reading enjoyment or for a research paper or project. They may use the computer stations here at school or at home to search our online databases for information that is not available on the internet and has been reviewed by experts in their respective fields.
With these resources available to them, students may actually become "architects of their own learning."
As Dr. Seuss says,
The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.
