The Library at DESS

The Library is a large, colourful, busy, welcoming area.  It is well stocked with over 17,000 resources comprising of fiction, non-fiction and picture books.  The main feature of the library is the two "Majlis" which are very popular relaxed seating areas where the children enjoy "storytime" or independent reading.

The Library is open from 7:10am until 2:00pm each day.  All children have the opportunity to change their books every day before school, play-time and snack time, in addition to their time-tabled library sessions.  In this time they also learn library skills, fostering a love of reading and book appreciation.
