Book Week 2015 "We All Speak Music" ended on Friday with an exciting Human Library event. I commend the time and effort all the Books in the Human Library volunteered. From International School of Estonia - Karolina Sepp and handbell students (Christian, Simon, Janek, Anjali, Saskia, Viola, Amane), Paula grade 10, Tamara grade 12, Guido Hiiemaa, Anais Chevalier, Reelika Herkel, Relika Bergstrom, Solvi Ryder, and from outside school Toomas Sepp and Andrea Patron. The books were very interesting and expedient. I was amazed by the talent people have to be shared with our students.
