Mission & Vision
AISE Library is a friendly space which strives to cultivate the passion for reading and the curriculum shared foundations outlined by the American Association of the School Librarians (AASL), such as to inquire, to include, to collaborate, to curate, to explore, and to engage. The AISE librarians endeavour to meet the diverse and intricate needs of students, faculty, parents, and all stakeholders involved. This aspiration is achieved by providing research options, project enrichment ideas, writing assistance, as well as access to great literature and various literacy initiatives throughout the year.
In the AISE Library, our younger students are given the opportunity to dive into literature through a multitude of read alouds, fun interactive activities, and specifically designed programs focused on library skills. Students in higher grades can practice their research skills, and are simultaneously exposed to a great collection of books, magazines, and online resources. In addition, there exists a plethora of topics that quite often spark collaboration with class teachers. These topics include subject matter such as citation, ethical behavior in the use of information, and misinformation/fake news. The latter topics make up the elements of the successfully implemented programs in the AISE library.
With offered designated work spaces, advice, and a multitude of resources, the AISE library supports and nourishes the crucial skills which form the AISE portrait of graduate students.
This portrait is reflected by students who are demonstrating skills such as critical thinking, inquiry, collaboration, communication, and reflection.
