The elementary and secondary libraries at AOSR are hubs for our inquisitive learners, spaces for exploration and growth, and critical extensions of our classrooms.
Our libraries are comfortable places for our students to foster a love for reading and research, and our librarians play a vital role in supporting our students as they pursue their interests and engage themselves with academic resources from around the world.
Each library is equipped with technology and texts that underpin the curriculum and allow us to serve our diverse academic community. The mission of each library is to empower our student body, encourage a love for learning, and to equip each individual with the skills needed to use information responsibly and creatively in our rapidly changing world.
