IMG_7329Welcome to the AISB Library!

The libraries are the center of information at AISB. We are now split into two locations to serve the community. The newly renovated Secondary Library mainly serves the Middle and High School students, as well as housing the parent and professional collections. Our temporarily relocated Elementary School Library (in Community Room 10) is geared to our students in grades one through five. While the new Early Childhood Centre is being built, the ES Library is also catering to our EC2- Kinder students and their families.

Overall, our libraries house 30,000+ print volumes, 18 electronic databases, 60+ magazine titles, DVDs, and professionals here to help with your information needs. The library is a vibrant place and sponsors a number of special events designed to promote reading and tap into our patrons’ multiple literacies. Our visiting author program brings artists, authors, storytellers, and musicians throughout the school year, and many of the visits are capped with a Family Night for the community.

Reading promotions begin with the Early Childhood and continue through Grade 12, and there is something for everyone! Literacy activities such as the EC R.E.D. Challenge, the Thirsty Vampire Challenge, Book Bingo, Blind Date with a Book, and the Battle of the Books keep our students reading!

With our libraries expanding into new spaces, the AISB community gains many benefits. Increased space means more quiet study rooms for individuals and tutoring sessions, larger teaching spaces, creative spaces for a mix of activities, and ultimately, a place where the community can come together. Individual students, classes, and parents are encouraged to take part in our activities and enjoy the space.

The AISB library appreciates the digital world and seeks to find a balance between digital and print resources. In addition to our print collection, we offer e-books and audiobooks online, the New York Times online, several children’s online collections (e.g. Big Universe, PebbleGo, and TumbleBooks), and a robust research database collection.

The AISB Library staff are dedicated to building skills in multiple literacies and this encompasses information literacy embedded into the curriculum. We collaborate regularly with the classroom teachers and support ongoing research and student inquiries. Our goal is to actively engage in student learning!
