Student Life - AJIS Library

Library PicWelcome to the A-JIS Library Catalogue!

We are excited to be able to provide our community with this valuable new resource, and believe that it will help our students in their studies. Use it for planning, preliminary research, and/or simply to get a feel for some of the resources we make available through our school’s library.

The AJIS library’s mission is to support the curriculum, promote literacy, and foster a love of reading. We offer a wide range of reading materials and electronic databases. Our database offerings are an excellent source for reliable information and can be accessed not only from school, but also from home.

We teach research skills necessary for students to navigate an information-rich world. Parents are welcome to come to the library before and after school to check out books. We look forward to seeing you in the library.
