QSI Astana believes in the power of reading to inspire, engage, and educate our students.
To this end, our school is proud of its vast library collection of over 16,000 texts in our library. We strive to provide a vast collection of books to inspire our students to read and develop a lifelong love of reading. Each year a significant proportion of our annual budget is dedicated to investing in new books for our school and classroom libraries.
Students are encouraged to read for enjoyment, as well as conduct research and continue independent learning inquiries. Students have opportunities for book exchange through regular classes, break times, and after school.
Additionally, the library staff collaborate with teachers to help integrate library and information seeking skills into classroom lessons.
Our Library provides print books, electronic books (eBooks) and access to K-12 appropriate websites. Access to our library holdings is available 24/7 from anywhere in the world by going to qsi.follettdestiny.com and selecting “QSI International School of Astana” from the list of schools.
