New Books by Swiss Authors

The library for grades 5 through 12 received the annual and highly anticipated book parcel from 'Pro-Helvetia'. It contains newly published novels written by young Swiss authors; highly recommended literature for our senior students, DSW employees and parents!

As soon as our new shelves arrive, these books, including a selection of titles from this year's Frankfurt Book Fair can be admired and checked out. We are also planning a belated Halloween display. Look forward to some solid reading enjoyment!
