Junior School Library

The Junior School Library is a central feature of the first floor and is a place where students develop a lifelong passion for reading and learning.

Our teacher librarian works with faculty and staff to teach students how to effectively use information resources and to develop the information literacy skills required for success in the 21st century.
Staff and students are provided with resources that:
  • support and enhance the IB curriculum and Learner Profile
  • promote lifelong learning and a love of language and literature
Our teacher librarian assists both faculty and students with their research and reading requirements through collaboration and shared teaching opportunities both in the classroom and in the library space.
