The ICS Library is a resource open to all community members before and after school, and, of course, during the regular school day. Families are also encouraged to use the library on Saturday morning when school is not in session. Our facility is made up of the elementary section serving the early childhood and elementary school as well as the secondary section used by our middle and high school communities.

Library Hours (when school is in session):

Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday: 7:30 AM-5:00 PM
Wednesday: 7:30 AM-2:15 PM
Saturday: 9:00 AM-12:00 noon

If you are a community member with a valid library account and are not able to visit the library during open hours please send an email with a request for the materials you are looking for to one of the staff member listed below. We will send materials home with your child.

The goals of our library program include instilling a love of reading and fostering information literacy skills. Early childhood and elementary classes visit the library for instruction on both a fixed and flexible schedule. Middle and high school classes use a flexible schedule although advisory groups are also scheduled on a rotational basis. Collaboration with classroom teachers is key to ensuring that lessons are not taught in isolation. To further meet our goals the library sponsors a number of special events during the school year including author visits, reading incentive programs, Children's Book Week celebrations, Teen Read Week, Poetry Month and Book Clubs.

The library has a comprehensive, current and relevant collection of books, reference materials, periodicals and online resources. Our catalogue is provided through the Koha program and is accessible at school through the school’s web site. Patrons also have access to the Internet at our computer workstations or through our wireless network.

The library staff is here is to assist with any library need. For more information about the ICS library please contact either the librarians or one of our wonderful library staff:
