金翅鸟图书馆

我校金翅鸟图书馆位于CLA 教学楼前厅,礼堂进口处。开放时间为中文学校运作周日的上午9:30至10:30。凡在我校注册的学生,都可以从图书馆一次借出三本图书,无需办理图书证。借期为一周。如需续借,请将书带回图书馆办理。

金翅鸟图书馆建立于2015年,目前藏书已超过一千三百本。绝大多数直接从国内书商处购得并运回。书籍按照其内容和中文程度,被分为三个级别分置于三个书架,以书脊下方的贴纸颜色区分等级。第一个书架,贴纸为红色和橙色,适合学龄前儿童,部分图书需要家长陪同引导阅读。第二个书架,贴纸为黄色,适合一至三年级学生自行阅读,部分书籍为中英双语。第三个书架,贴纸为绿色和蓝色的,适合有较好阅读能力的高年级同学。本馆藏书,内容涉及广泛,从唐诗、西游记这样的中华经典,到流行少儿读物如《哈里波特》和《小屁孩日记》系列;从神话传说故事到神奇校车系列百科全书,相信每一位小朋友都能找到适合自己的书。

为鼓励同学们多读中文书,图书馆还推出了“图书馆护照”。每位同学都可以领取一本,在图书馆借书的时候,管理员会在“图书馆护照”上盖章。在收集满6个章后,小朋友可以在图书馆的宝箱里挑选一件奖品。另外,翻到“图书馆护照”的后半部分,您会发现有书写读书笔记的专用页面。每完成一页读书笔记,也可以从图书馆的宝箱里领取奖品。

欢迎各位同学和家长踊跃来图书馆借阅图书。大家一起享受读书的乐趣,让中文学习变得更快乐。

Golden Wings Chinese Library

Our Chinese library, Golden Wings Chinese Library, is located at CLA lobby, right outside CLA 200 auditorium. Its operation hour is 9:30-10:30 every Sunday morning when Chinese school is open. Every registered student is eligible to use the library, without the need of a library card. Each student can check out up to 3 books each week, which should be returned or renewed the following Sunday when Chinese school is open. Please bring the books back to the library for renew.

Founded in 2015, the library has over 1000 books, majority of which was purchased directly from China. Based on level of difficulty, the books are divided into 3 categories, each on an individual book shelf with color-coding stickers on the side of each book. The first level with red or orange stickers is for early readers, or read by parents. The next level, with yellow stickers, is for elementary school age children. The highest level, with green or blue stickers are for more advanced readers. In our library, you may find Chinese translation of some popular kid books such as “Magic School Bus”, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”, “Harry Potter” as well as many classical Chinese stories.

To encourage reading, each user is given a “Library Passport”. It is not required for borrowing books, but each time, a student checks out books (by themselves or by their parents), the librarian will put a small blue stamp on their passport. If a student writes down what the book is about or what he/she learned from the book in Chinese on one of the blank pages in the passport, the student will earn a big red stamp. For every 6 small blue stamps or a single big red stamp, a student can choose a small gift from our library “treasure box”.

We welcome parents to stop by at CLA Lobby after dropping off the kids, pick a few books and enjoy reading with your children!

The creation of Golden Wings Chinese Library was made possible by then Principal Michael Sun, then AP Chinese teacher Xiaopeng Ju and our current Librarian Yuling An. Without their generosity and hard work, the library project would not have been possible.
