Library Redesign and Early Closing
We will be closing our library early this year to prepare to welcome our Early Childhood students and merge our EC and LS collections. We seek to create a positive, stimulating environment where students are encouraged to learn and explore and where there is a sense of belonging. With the redesign we are creating areas specific to our youngest students' needs, while ensuring we appeal to all age groups we serve.
We will continue to provide quiet reading spaces, areas for small group collaboration, areas to accommodate whole classes and maintain the flexibility to adjust the space for larger events and guest authors. In order to do so, we will offer summer reading checkout earlier in the year, and then close the space to begin the redesign. We are excited about our plans, and hope you will enjoy the new space when it is revealed in August at the start of next school year.
Please pay close attention to our upcoming dates listed below.

The LS library is central to implementing, enriching and supporting the teaching and learning program of our school.
Each campus has a library and its own online catalog, which can be searched individually or as a group, using the Follett Destiny software -- see zis.ch.
Digital resources are shared between the campuses, using the Libguides toolkit -- see libguides.zis.ch.
