Greenwood’s Library prepares its students to be effective and efficient users of information by providing print and electronic resources that serve the educational needs of the school community while encouraging a deep appreciation of literature and reading for personal enjoyment.
The Integrated Primary Years Programme (IPYP) block has its own library which serves our primary students, which includes grades one to five. Each class in the Primary School visits the library once during the rotation for story times and other literacy activities with the librarians.
The Senior School Library (housed in the Main Block) serves grades six to twelve. The dedicated team of librarians is available for in-class visits for help with research skills and books for all students and staff alike. It has grown over the years, and now holds over 15000 books. The books cover a wide-range of subjects, are enriching to the young minds. They library is up-to-date, and houses popular and classical titles from both fiction and non-fiction categories. Besides there are also collections available in French, German, Spanish and Hindi. The library also has several electronic subscriptions to aid further studies and research.
To make the school library a true information hub, and to support multiple learning activities, several computers and printers are being used in library for research and reference. The library also provides several useful websites to find information on the internet and access the digital world. For example, all users can always access JSTOR and other digital resources.
Also available in the library are reading and workstations and resource rooms for teachers and students. Students can browse and borrow from the extensive collection, set up individual sessions for research help, study, relax, and read current news magazines or meet with teachers in a comfortable setting.
