Library

ISA’s Libraries provide future-ready reading and research instructional programs for our Early Childhood (Nursery – Grade 1), Lower School (Grade 2 – Grade 5), and Upper School (Grade 6 – Grade 12) divisions. Each of the three libraries has a professional team of a full-time Librarian and full-time Library Assistant. The libraries are here to make sure students can find their next great read, see themselves reflected in our collections, and become avid explorers and creators in the world of ideas and information. Our instructional programs are fully integrated into ISA’s PYP, MYP, and DP curricular frameworks, and are richly resourced in both print and digital collections accessible to members of our learning community wherever they are reading and learning. The three library facilities are student-centered, state of the art instructional hubs and celebrate all members of the ISA community through diverse texts, languages, and viewpoints.
