AES Libraries Mission Statement:
The American Embassy School libraries support the AES Mission. The libraries encourage “inspired lifelong learning” and support all areas of the AES curriculum. Literacy, literature appreciation, inquiry, and collaboration are key components of the library programs. Both libraries’ welcoming environments provide access to current, relevant resources.
The Stein Library is shared by middle and high school students. It is the place to borrow books, to conduct academic and personal research, and to have a comfortable, quiet place to read, study, or collaborate. The library has print resources (books, magazines, and newspapers), digital resources (Kindles, Sora books, RBdigital magazines, and several databases), a knowledgeable staff, and a variety of physical spaces to meet students’ needs. The Libguides site can direct you to the resources that are available.
The library is open on school days from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm and from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm most Saturdays. In addition to class visits to conduct research, high school students are welcome in the library before and after school, and at break and lunch time, and during their study periods. There is no limit to the number of books that students may check out at a time.
All faculty, parents, and students are welcome to access the library resources.
