The third floor library will be specifically providing a cozy reading and studying environment for the middle school, high school students and adults later.
Parents are encouraged to utilize the YIA library as well. Our library provides three language books which include English, Korean, and Chinese. We also provide computers for students to search for books. We use a color code system to help students, staff, and parents find books with more ease, for example; yellow code for Elementary books, purple code for secondary books, white code for Chinese and Korean books, and pink code for classical collections. We also encourage families to donate fiction and nonfiction books in Chinese and Korean to our collection.
In addition to a growing book collection, we subscribe to Tumblebooks, an online library of books, resources, and activities for preschool through high school. Social Studies databases are available for secondary students to use for research.
Both libraries are not merely a place where we foster students’love for lifelong reading, but also social learning spaces where students are encouraged to come in as casual groups to mingle with each other. The elementary library also has an enclosed classroom where students and teachers are welcome to use to practice speech assignments, work with friends, or tutors.
