The Mission of the WIS Library is to establish an inviting and dynamic learning environment and to provide services that support and enhance teaching, literacy, and learning in support of the Primary Years and Middle Years IB Programs.
The WIS library and media center is an international library that holds over 11,000 volumes, with new titles added regularly. The students learn to use the online library catalog to search for books, as well as how to research using the online databases subscribed to by the school. Students and staff may access these databases of articles and ebooks using their username and password at any time of the day, any day of the week.
The library is open to the school community from 8:00 to 15:20 on Mondays and Fridays, and from 8:45 to 16:30 from Tuesday to Thursday. Each class has the opportunity to visit the library on a weekly basis with a dedicated time for browsing and checking out books. Library and research skills are incorporated into the regular curriculum to support the student’s inquiries and learning.
