The Middle and High School Library, located on the second floor of the Middle School building, offers a variety of resources for research and recreational reading to support the school’s curriculum and students’ personal interests. 

The space facilitates both quiet study and reading for students, and meeting areas for collaborative project work.

The Library also provides a variety of technology equipment for check out such as digital SLR cameras, tablets, iPADs, laptops for daily loan, calculators, and TV production class equipment.

Our extensive digital library is one of the most robust in Abu Dhabi, providing access to numerous databases up to university level such as JSTOR, Questia School, EBSCO Explora. We encourage all students to actively read reliable news publications and provide free access to The New York Times Online. All students have access to digital resources. Additional Middle and High School Library Resources are linked with the portal homepage. Remote access to our digital resources is available 24/7 for our students. 

We welcome and guide our students whenever they need help or have questions. Our team also guides community members in checking in and out materials, using technology, facilitating research, and assisting them in finding that perfect book.
