Reading is one of the fundamental skills a child needs to learn to succeed in life. The library facility is at the heart of our school. At DIS the library is a treasure trove of knowledge. Delhi International School also believes that technology can never substitute the magic of a book. The teachers at DIS strive to inculcate good reading habits among the students. The well designed library with an attached digital library section has a wide collection of reference books, magazines, periodicals, newspapers. Weekly classes are organized on book reading, book review and storytelling to instil in the students a love for reading. Reading improves concentration; develops analytical skills; expands vocabulary; reduces stress; increases verbal intelligence; boosts memory and immensely enhances learning capacity.
One of the easiest ways to give children the ‘heads up’ on the pleasure of reading is for them to see you (Teachers & Parents) enjoying reading. They will want to emulate you. At DIS the role of the library is to provide a dynamic and flexible space that is innovatively designed with the 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 Bibliotheque at DIS offers an amazing variety of learning experiences for students of all ages.
