Stay tuned for announcements for “Thing Big, Think Green”, an exciting project for the library that focuses on creating a trans-Atlantic discussion about sustainability through Zoom meetings between students, workshops, virtual tours of farms, keynote speakers and a pertinent selection of books…all of this to create a forum to support an exchange on how we can make our food consumption more sustainable, healthier and more respectful of the planet Earth. “Think Big, Thing Green” is a timely opportunity for the library’s community to engage in discussion about the future! This program has been made possible with the support of the Embassy of the United States of America, France.
The English-language Library feels strongly about supporting students during this difficult period and supporting them NOW.
Mentor program – students can sign up to have a mentor. The library’s mentors can help students with immediate needs or building vision for the future by sharing information and skills during meetings. Both mentor and mentee agree to meet over 3 months from the time they are introduced on a weekly basis. To sign up to the library’s mentor program students can fill out the information below by email and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. The library will send the student the program guidelines and start matching them with their mentor.

Dear friend, dear library member,
2020 brought us some good things (!): marks of solidarity, the discovery of new tools (Zoom, Whatsapp, Trello, etc.) and the rediscovery and delicious taste of what seemed to us definitively acquired: friendship, the beauty of nature, the sweetness of one’s family and just being alive.
May 2021 be even sweeter and also more “normal” so that we can (finally) meet in groups without risk for an activity, a drink or a newborn child.
These are our New Year’s wishes I extend with Phoebe and the staff to you and all those dear to you, thanking you for the trust you have placed in us throughout this “special” year and for your generosity.
Long live 2021 and its promises!
Anne LEBEUGLE, Chairwoman of the library board
