From an early age, the school library plays a central role in the students' IB education.
EIM has two connected libraries, one for the primary section and the other for the secondary section with both French and English language resources. Many activities are organized to ensure that the library is a regular point of passage for our students, whether to borrow books, to find the resources needed for their work, or to complete independent or group work.
The librarian organizes weekly extracurricular meetings for PYP students in addition to regular classroom visits as part of the school curriculum. For MYP and DP students, a book club and various competitions are organized. The librarian also works closely with students to ensure that both libraries are part of the school life and that they are well equipped to meet the students' needs.
Students can consult the list of books and their availability remotely via the school's website. Moreover, MYP and DP students have access to the various online platforms to complete their research. These contain articles, reviews and resources that allow students to have quick access to verified information about the topics studied in their classes.
Students and teachers of the "Diploma Programme", i.e. grades 11 and 12, will visit the library of the ULB (Université Libre de Bruxelles) where they will learn to do academic research in a vast environment. Students will have access to this library throughout their Diploma Programme. The ULB library is an excellent complement to the EIM library and resources, and it allows students to gradually become familiar with and comfortable in a university setting.
