The Library Team
I teach in both the primary and secondary school working with students to develop information literacy skills and to encourage a life long love of reading.Dina Abizaid: Library Assistant Marmara Campus – Literacy Support My career as a library specialist started at the Children’s Department of the Peabody Massachusetts library, USA. Later my career brought me back to Almaty, Kazakhstan, where I am originally from. I worked at Almaty International School Library as a Librarian. Soon after I moved to Istanbul, Turkey I completed my MA degree in Information Studies at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. And now I am a library team-member at IICS. I am excited about this new library adventure where we will be reading books, exploring the Destiny world and doing research in the Library databases.
