Monday is Library Day Library is open on: Mondays 9:00am - 3:00pm.
Each Monday students will be able to borrow new books and return the books they have read.
Apart from borrowing procedures, the Library is open for students to have an opportunity to familiarise themselves to new books obtained by the school; search for books of their choice to read in the Library during recess or lunch; do research related to a specific homework or assignment.
AGBU Alexander Primary School has a modern Library, which supports the educational program and curriculum of the School through providing relevant and useful materials, resources and teaching programs. The Library has over 5,000 resources including junior and senior fiction, non-fiction, reference materials, teaching resources, audio-visual materials, catalogues, and much more. The Library Automation System operates the Oliver Junior software, a web based library and information management solution, especially designed for schools. This new Library Management System helps to catalogue and circulate books as well as giving the students and teaching staff easy access to the system to locate and use library resources online effectively through its OPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue) system. It allows the students and the teaching staff to access the system online from anywhere and anytime.
The objectives of the Library are:
to provide the students and teaching staff with resources useful and relevant to the academic needs and teaching curriculum;
to educate the students to effectively and efficiently utilise online and offline library resources;
to develop students’ interest in and commitment to books and reading;
to help students undertake research on a specific project.
to support students and teaching staff in library related activities and programs.
What makes a difference for our Library is its bilingual nature, which allows the students to be exposed to a variety of materials and resources both in Armenian and English. The Oliver Junior library software also allows us to have a bilingual resource database in which we can search for resources in both English and Armenian.
