Ms. Welcome Back to the MLC!


My name is Ms. Laine and I am the new ELE Librarian here at NIST. I am so excited to get to know all of you in the coming months as we get into a new and exciting school year! I am originally from Canada, but have lived in Thailand previously, as well as China and Dubai. I am a passionate reader and particularly enjoy picture books, fantasy, and biographies. My favourite books and authors change all the time, but my current favourite author is Mac Barnett, and my favourite book of the moment is Milo Imagines the World by Matt de la Pena. I can’t wait to get to know all of you and learn about your exciting reading lives!

Book Borrowing

The MLC will resume remote book pick up on Monday, August 16th. Book pick up will take place twice per week, on Wednesday and Friday afternoons. If you’d like to borrow library books, please follow the below steps:

  • access the MLC collection at and find the available books you’d like to borrow
  • email our MLC team at with a list of the books you’d like to request, as well as your preferred pick up time
  • pick up your selected books from the atrium at your chosen time slot

Sora Overdrive and Press Reader

The MLC is excited to have access to thousands of ebooks and audiobooks accessible through the Sora app! Go to and select NIST under the Thailand International Schools Consortium from the ‘Find My School’ option. You may log in with your Veracross ID, and then read away! Please remember that our ebooks are single user copies and our other enthusiastic readers would be grateful if you pressed the ‘return’ option when finished with a book. For login instructions with screenshots, please see the below image.

Press Reader is another amazing resource for virtual learning which gives us access to magazines and newspapers from around the world. Log in to using your Veracross ID to access all of these incredible resources, from National Geographic magazine to the Economist to Canadian Living! 

Please reach out to us at the MLC with any questions or concerns. I cannot wait to get to know each and every one of you this year!
