WELCOME TO THE LIBRARY
The International School of Sosua library believes reading is crucial in the development of children; expanding their imagination, their knowledge, their vocabulary. The library is a place where children begin to learn to learn, where information skills are first taught, creating individuals competent in finding information. We aim to inspire our students at a young age and make them passionate about reading by promoting the love of books. Reading and books are central to learning. Here our role is to inspire students to love books and reading at all ages. Students from PreK2 to Grade 5 have weekly sessions in the library. They have the opportunity to check books in and out as well as being introduced to a range of genre and literacy skills in a fun and diverse way.
The library houses over 10,000 titles in English and Spanish, magazines, multimedia, and reference.
The library is open from 7:45-3:30 Monday-Friday. Parents are welcome to check out books, and come with their children before and after school.

meet our Librarian
I was raised in the wilds of Scotland, got my first degree at Birmingham University, Masters (MSc) at Ibadan University (Nigeria) and my Post-grad Certificate of Education at Goldsmith's College, London. I have taught primary in London for many years, headed the junior department as well as Science, wrote teaching materials for Channel 4, won two National teaching awards and trained teachers for my Local Education Authority in SATS and Science.
More recently I have been self-employed in the UK property market and have lived in Sosua for the last few years. My love for teaching, working with children and books has brought me to ISS for what could be described as my dream job!
I work part-time (mornings) as Elementary Librarian and Learning Support teacher.
