What's new @ InfoHub? Tuning in to Reading....

Dear Students

Just before the end of Term 1, we distributed a reading list, with titles recommended by the NLB.
You can find the complete list below.


Indeed, you would have noticed that the InfoHub has made an attempt to tag the Lexile score to the titles in the list when possible.

In addition, we have added the Lexile score to the books in the InfoHub, whenever possible. With more than 75% of you had taken the Lexile test and obtained the score, you can now select books that are pegged at your reading level so that you can work towards leveling up your reading proficiency.


Please do not hesitate to approach Ms Juliana, our librarian if you need assistance in this.
