ES and MS/HS Libraries
Welcome to the AISD Libraries!
With over 39,000 volumes and access to 14 academic databases, AISD houses the largest English library in Bangladesh.
We operate two library facilities on our campus; one for elementary students and one for middle and high school students. The library also manages a textbook warehouse to support the AISD curriculum and a professional library for teaching staff. All AISD community members are welcome to use library facilities any time during opening hours.
The AISD Libraries provide our community with an array of resources. International magazines and newspapers are delivered on a regular basis. Books, iPads and laptops, subscription databases, printers and scanners, Playaways and eBooks, DVDs and CDs, and WiFi are available in both facilities. You will find comfortable seating areas throughout the libraries and two study rooms in the MS/HS library are available for group work.
The mission of the AISD Libraries is to provide a 21st Century learning environment in which a love of reading is fostered, the effective and ethical use of information and communications technology is promoted and the intellectual potential of each student is supported. Through collaboration, the libraries partner with the AISD community to empower students in becoming life-long learners, problem solvers, and responsible citizens.
For current library hours, kindly refer to the weekly Shamachar newsletter.
The AISD libraries' resources are available to currently enrolled families as well as AISD staff. All patrons may have up to 10 items checked out from the print collections as well as three e-books from our OverDrive collection. The check-out period for print resources is two weeks; for digital resources, check-out spans three weeks. All resources have options for renewal.
Our ES Library subscribes to periodicals covering a multitude of topics geared to the interests of our elementary students. Our MS/HS library has a variety of general interest magazines for students and parents in English, Spanish, French and Bangla as well as professional journals. All are available for check-out.
Our online catalog, Destiny, allows patrons to search our collection as well as related websites. If patrons log on to Destiny, they can utilize the catalog more fully. When logged in, patrons can create resource lists, self-renew books, place their own holds, keep track of books that they have read and want to read and more. AISD patrons use their school ID for both usernames and passwords in Destiny.
