Welcome to English Modern School Khor Library!
The English Modern School – Khor Library houses over 22,000 books. The library was enlarged to better meet the needs of students and staff. It is divided into the following sections:
- Everybody Section
- Fiction Books for Years 3-6
- Fiction Books for Years 7-12
- Fiction Books for Years 10-12
- Non-Fiction Section
- Reference Section
- Teacher Resources
The books are also grouped by reading level, using the Fountas and Pinnell System. Almost all the books in the library are marked with the Fountas & Pinnell reading level to ensure that students select reading materials that are appropriate to their level.
