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 the 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.

Secondary Library

For secondary students, the library is available throughout the school day to support their studies. Secondary classes come in for reading time. During workshops, the Teacher Librarians assist them with their research by providing information and training on how to use the Library’s academic research databases (such as EBSCO) and other resources available at the AICS (e.g. NoodleTools).
