"As a native English speaker, the opportunity to be able to teach something I am passionate about in my own language is wonderful." Emma Eyre, bildlärare
Welcome to the IES Jönköping Library
The library is open throughout the school day and welcomes both staff and students. We have over 8,000 titles offering a variety of genres, languages, and reading levels for Primary, Junior and Senior students.
The shelves are carefully maintained to contain not only the classics, but also popular and contemporary titles. Although majority of the books are in English and Swedish, we have many books in Arabic, German, Spanish and French. In addition, there is a wide range of both fiction and non-fiction books.
Our collection also offers reference books, magazines and newspapers in Swedish and English to help with various subjects or school projects. These include National Geographic, Illustrerad Vetenskap, KP, and Svenska Dagbladet Junior. So there is no better place for those bookworms to spend their break time than getting cozy in our library for a good read!
Adjacent to the library there is a quiet study room. This room is for Senior students only and features 10 Chromebox workstations, a printer, work desks and a collection of reference and non-fiction materials and magazines.
One of the key goals of the library is to promote lifelong learning, by fostering positive attitude towards libraries, books, and reading. Therefore, we have the following rules in place at all times in the library:
- Conversation should take place in a subdued tone
- Everyone is responsible for maintaining the proper order of books on the shelf
- No food or drink
- Computers are only for school work
