It enables, encourages and empowers teaching and learning for all members of the school community. The role of the library is to provide a dynamic and flexible space that is innovatively designed with best practices and research in mind where students can explore and use various resources in different formats. They are encouraged to grow and become passionate learners and individuals where the world of knowledge opens up to them. The available resources offer an amazing variety of learning experiences for all ages as it comes from a variety of sources. Although, at Apex, we have embraced technology to enable children for the future, we have laid equal emphasis on developing and inculcating the habit of reading books.
With a wide array of books, an experienced and wise librarian to guide them, our children - curious, academically inclined, sensitive, and hesitant - will be gently guided into the magical world of books; into great literature - filling their young minds with history’s heroes and the exploits of great men.
The primary objective of library is to support the information needs of all levels of the School, particularly those demands that arise out of its various teaching programs. Also important, of course, are more general information enquiries and recreational reading needs.
Close attention is paid to the education and empowerment of users themselves. Every attempt is made to strengthen their information-seeking strategies as they work alongside library staff members. Information literacy of this kind is crucial in any quest for independent lifelong learning.
The enriching power of fiction, and indeed all genres of literature, is a fundamental article of belief. To this end, the library supplements their book stocks through constant collection development activity. In partnership with the English faculty, the library works to encourage student reading as a lifetime activity of the highest importance.
The library encourages co-operative curriculum resourcing with all Key Learning Areas and Faculties. Links fostered with individual members of the teaching staff are seen as essential in achieving effective information resource planning and provides in additional opportunity for the development of excellent Information Skills.
