Since its inception, IAS has shown interest in promoting academic values among its students by providing a space that invites students to investigate, study, work and recreate in the world of books. Because of this interest, our school has the largest school library in Cancun, with fully automated and structured services that support study plans and programs. These include book loans, databases, brochures, magazines, maps, etc.
There are two libraries on campus, one for kindergarten and primary and the other for middle and high school. Both have books in English and Spanish, and students may check out books, which encourages them to read at home and in school.
The kindergarten and primary library follows the National Reading Program established by the SEP. This is done by having a library on school grounds, having classroom libraries with books designated for each grade level, and having books which complement the curriculum and strengthen daily reading habits.
The middle and high school library, one of the most visited places in the community, annually provides over 8,500 loans and has over 12,200 visits to its catalog and online databases. It is a symbol of the school’s reading community.
Students have a limit on how many books they may check out from the library. They will not be allowed to get any new books, unless all books are returned. If a book is a lost, students must pay for the book or replace it. Teachers and parents are welcome to check out books as well.
In order to keep adding titles to our collection, donations are accepted.
