LIBRARY NURSERY AND PRIMARY
With a collection of about 28,000 catalogue records, the secondary library offers a large selection of books in different languages. There are not only books in English, German and French, but also in Luxemburgish, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Polish, Estonian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Irish and Bulgarian. Apart from that it also has several reference books which help to learn Italian and Latin.
The online catalogue can be consulted through the National Library’s Web site: http://catalog.bibnet.lu
Being a collective catalogue of several Luxembourgish libraries (bibnet.lu members), it provides references of the secondary school, as well as of other member libraries. It gives information about the availability and, if a book has been taken out, the date of return.
Periodicals in different languages are available for consultation on the premises and are not part of the catalogue.
Computerised loan system
Secondary school has been using a computer based system for book loans since 2005.
To take out books borrowers should show their ID card ( which bears the library bar code) or they can give their surname to the librarian.
Books can be taken out for a period of 3 weeks (3 books maximum), to which the librarian can give an extension at any time if necessary.
