Welcome to the LBIS Library. It is an active space that is welcoming and designed to cater for 21st century teaching and learning. Our mission statement is “to transform library users through access to credible information resources so as to become inquirers and life-long learners in a fast changing world”.

The library offers a one-stop shop with plenty of print (books, magazines, newspapers, etc) and non-print (e-resources, online databases, etc) information resources. Most of these resources can be located in our Library software called Destiny Library Manager (DLM), which requires a user to log-in using their issued login details. Wireless internet is accessible within the campus facility.

We encourage relaxed reading for fun; urge users write book reviews and send recommendations to colleagues within the LBIS community. Please feel free to maximize this library facility and to make it your home away from home.

The Library Policy Handbook (2017) is a key component that sets basic platforms for library operations and scaffolds teaching and learning within the LBIS taught curriculae. This library serves as the hub of the school and functions in line with the school’s mission statement.

The library supports research based activities by encouraging students to become critical and creative thinkers, independent, ethical and solution providers. We value inquiry based processes and greatly honour academic integrity.

Library staff are available to support teaching and learning within the school’s multicultural setup. Please feel free to maximize usage of the library and to make this space your home.

Thank you.
