"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 located on the 2nd floor of the B-Building. We are open for the duration of the school day and all students, teachers, and other members of staff are welcome.
The library contains over 9,000 unique titles spanning a variety of genres, languages, and reading levels. Though most of the books in the library are in English or Swedish, we have many books in Arabic, German, Spanish and French. In addition to the wide range of fiction works, the collection contains many reference books and non-fiction resources. The shelves are carefully maintained to contain not only the classics, but also popular and contemporary titles. We also feature several magazines and newspapers in both English and Swedish, including National Geographic, Illustrerad Vetenskap, KP, and Svenska Dagbladet Junior. There is truly something for everyone!
Adjacent to the library there is a quiet study room. This room is for Senior School students only and features 10 Chromebox workstations, a printer, 10 individual work desks, and a collection of reference and non-fiction materials, and magazines.
The main goal of the library is to promote lifelong learning by fostering positive attitudes towards libraries, books, and reading. In order to achieve this, it’s important that the library functions properly.
Which means the following rules apply at all times:
- 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
