AICS Libraries

Reading is at the core of our activities. Our library has a magnificent collection of more than 60,000 books. While most of our books are in English, we are actively expanding our collection in other languages spoken by students and teachers, including Dutch, French, Italian, Japanese, Hindi, Arabic, and others.

We encourage students to borrow books and read as much as possible. Therefore, parents are encouraged to visit after school hours to borrow books for their children and themselves.

Primary Library

Every week, we meet with each primary group to read a story or learn more about information literacy. During this time, children borrow books to take home for the week.

The AICS Library Catalogue offers access to the entire collection in all three campus libraries. With your login, you can reserve books, create reading lists, rate books, like authors, request book acquisitions, and even post reviews. Click here to access it.
