Libraries

The library's mission is to provide a place where students can work individually and in small groups; where they can browse through open shelves and sample new interests; where teachers can pursue their own research and interests. It is also a place to which the entire community can look as a source of tradition and permanence on the campus.

With the overhead budget of 700,000 USD, library for First Program will occupy 190m2 or 1,839 sq ft of space and 1.050m2 or 11,302 sq ft for Middle and High school. The aim of the library is to provide quality services that are sufficiently flexible to meet the challenges of educational, societal and technological change while still maintaining the traditional role of the library as a locus for the academic life of the community.
