When I first came to Shenzhen in 2011 the popular slogan caught my attention: "You are a Shenzhener as soon as you get here". Frankly, as much as I wanted to make this new place my home, for years I still felt like an outsider. I had a family, friends, and acquaintances, but no sense of belonging.
The library plays a central role at SLIS. In the Primary Years Program the library serves as a learning hub for the students to research and gather knowledge in relation to the units of inquiry. The library at SLIS is well stocked with both fiction and no fiction material with appropriate material for students of all ages. We want the library to be welcoming, and to be a place where our students love to gather, learn and develop a love of reading.
