DAIS library is a large facility shared by students, teachers and parents. It serves as both a reading and information center within the context of the various curricula taught in all divisions. It is a well-equipped facility and the pride of DAIS. Our library is divided into two separate sections and caters to all students within DAIS, including access to the internet. Our Elementary grades visit the library weekly, although they may borrow and return books at other times. Middle and High school students come to the library in planned, scheduled sessions or with a pass, authorized by the classroom teacher. Please refer to the students handbook for our Library and Technology rules.
The library is a classroom where students learn the following information skills:
- finding a variety of information
- selecting a variety of information
- analyzing a variety of information
- organizing a variety of information
- communicating a variety of information meaningfully
The library is open from 7:40 am to 2:30 pm each day. Books and other circulating materials may be checked out to students for a two week period. To renew a book or other material, students must return them to the library to be re-scanned. Reasonable care must be taken to maintain books in good condition. Students will be charged for lost or damaged materials. Overdue notices are sent periodically through the classroom teachers. Any fees for lost books and materials must be settled prior to the final term or report cards will be withheld.
