CIS Secondary Library: Making the Virtual Visible

Perhaps you were wondering...

...what's new to read in the library?

Plenty. A random assortment of our new titles are flashing below, but the best strategy is for you to come by the library and take a look around. Now it's my turn to ask the question: what are you reading?

Conduct a basic search of materials in this window. For more extensive searches, you can log in to your Destiny account by using your Moongate password.

Ms Che, Ms Mak, Ms Wong, & Mr Anderson

The students, faculty, and CIS community at-large have a full range of materials and services within easy grasp. Our space is more than a repository for information. We focus our energy on the unique needs of our learning community, no matter what form that may take. While one can certainly find a fantastic dual-language collection of fiction and nonfiction materials, we support the needs of whomever walks through our doors. Whether you visit us in person or you take advantage of our services via this LibGuide, we are confident you will find what you need at the CIS Secondary Library.

*Rather than charging fees for most overdue materials, we ask that you return or renew items. You will not be allowed to check out any additional items if you owe a fine or have anything overdue. The rule of thumb: if you expect to check something out, take care of your obligations.

**If a missing or damaged item is part of a set and we are not able to replace the missing portion, then you need to pay for the replacement of the entire set, which means the cost may be significantly higher. This applies to both books and AV materials.
