Borrowing Books during the Summer Months

Borrowing Books during the Summer Months We encourage learners to keep borrowing books from our school libraries during the summer months of JULY and SEPTEMBER. St Martin’s College will keep using the 'email and collect' system whereby students send a list of book titles or preferred genres via email to romainepetrocochino@smc.edu.mt or through Teams. Books may then be collected from reception. Chiswick House School is also offering the opportunity to borrow books during the month of JULY. Email theamansfield@chs.edu.mt with your required book titles and they will be prepared for collection from reception. Please not that both libraries are closed throughout the month of August.
