OUR MISSION

The Library Learning Commons (LLC) is striving to be the heart of literacy, writing, research and communication for not only the students at ISH, but for the whole community as well.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We are a very diverse school, so the LLC at ISH is constantly at work to diversify and expand our collection. We continue to build a collection in which students, staff, parents and the community can access books representing a wide range of cultures, backgrounds and languages.

As the heart of literacy for the school, the LLC at ISH has displays, clubs and is open during breaks to instill a love of reading in all students and staff. The librarians encourage reading for pleasure in every lesson they teach and breaks they supervise.
In the LLC we get to explore many universes and far away lands from within the pages of a book!

OUR GRAND REOPENING

Our Library Grand Opening was a fabulous success! We now have beautiful new shelves, flexible seating, a tree house and many great places to read our books!

In addition, we now have the Collaboration Room at the back of the LLC! It is a space in which the school will host professional development sessions, lessons and meetings. Most recently it was used for Social Studies students to complete research projects!

We want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who helped to transform these old rooms into an epic area of learning, reading and community.

OUR MONTHLY DISPLAYS

This month we are celebrating our ISH Value of RESPECT. There is a selection of books for all ages to help develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be respectful.

We are also displaying wonderful books that were kindly donated by the PTSA.The theme for these books is One World, Many Stories. Be sure to come check them out!
