Love of Reading Library Kickoff Event!
Al-Quds Bard College,
On Wednesday, November 2nd, the English as a Foreign Language Division at Al-Quds Bard (AQB) College hosted the first Love of Reading Library Kickoff event, to share a new resource with AQB students in all programs. Around 60 students attended the session, which had four stations set up that were facilitated by student volunteers. In short, students celebrated reading by checking out books based on their interests. Specifically, students did activities that included: (1) choosing a book, (2) learning the benefits of “reading for fun,” (3) discussing books with games, and (4) brainstorming a reading club. By reading continuously, students’ fluency and love of reading will increase. The Love of Reading Library will be a regular resource for student-led clubs and the EFL division courses alike, as part of a larger effort to strengthen a culture of reading at AQB.
