Library Media Centre
The mission of
our BIS Library Media Centre
empower a culture of reading,
inspire the abilities to effectively locate, evaluate and use information and
achieve an attitude of lifelong learning.
The BIS Library Media Centre is the school’s academic hub and our largest classroom. Our highly-trained librarians cultivate a dynamic, internationally-focused collection of books and multi-media sources. They partner with classroom teachers from Early Learning to Grade 12 to integrate information, research, and technology skills into student learning. Well-resourced for a diversity of learning styles, our Library Media Centre hums with students at work, whether in regular weekly classes or working on independent projects.
The Media Centre is open (on campus) every school day. In reality, our digital subscriptions, eBooks, and online databases are available 24 hours a day. Use of the Library Media Centre and its resources is also open to parents and caregivers; please log in to the community portal in for more details.
Evaluating information for accuracy and authenticity is increasingly critical in our society. Since digital media allows anyone to publish anything, the ability to think critically about what we read and watch cannot be understated.
