LAS Libraries consists of two libraries, one in the Savoy building and another on the Belle Époque campus. They serve as the information and technological centers for the LAS community with a combined collection of around 18,000 items consisting of books, magazines and journals, newspapers, ebooks, audio-visual materials, databases, and technological devices, such as DSLR cameras, HD video cameras, and much more. The collection contains items covering a wide range of subjects and languages, including art, history, philosophy, religion, sociology, science, and English, French and German literature. There is a special emphasis on collecting items that support the LAS curriculum and its diverse student and faculty body.
Both libraries provide a welcoming atmosphere, where students, faculty and the LAS community can consult with qualified librarians, conduct research, collaborate, create, meet, work and study. Wi-fi is available throughout both spaces along with a desktop computer that is directly connected to the network and wireless printing. An interesting array of programs, such as reading programs, lecture series, contests and more, is offered throughout the year that informs, teaches and motivates students to engage with their 21st century world.
The large and vibrant Savoy Library serves the Savoy campus and its students in grades 7 through 10 while also providing additional support to the upper grades at the Belle Époque campus. It contains diverse fiction, non-fiction, ESL, graphic novel and mother tongue sections, a periodicals collection, and an audio-visual collection. It is also home to the Digital Media Commons, where students and staff can check out cameras and other technological devices that can be used to support their courses and projects. The Savoy Library also includes a spacious conference room, lecture area, group study tables and a children’s corner.
The lovely Belle Époque Library, opened in 2012, houses fiction, nonfiction, magazines, and audio-visual titles that support the IB Diploma Programme and grades 11 and 12. There is also a reading room and group study area with hardwood floors, comfortable furniture and large windows providing ambiance.
