Library Media Center

Library Media Center

With flexible spaces, feel-good lighting, warm and qualified staff, and a richly diverse collection that is constantly and intentionally curated for the benefit of the community, the Library Media Center functions as the “living room” of ICS. The engaging and welcoming environment serves as a collaborative learning space where members of the ICS community read, study, engage, inquire, design, reflect, and grow.

Elementary students come to the library for Inquiry and Digital Design (IDD) and often revisit the space before and after school to explore the collection, participate in extracurricular STEAM activities, or simply spend time with friends. Middle and high school students utilize the Library Media Center space and resources during breaks, lunch, and study halls, as well as before and after school. Parents and faculty stop in throughout the day looking for a good read, meaningful conversation, or just a comfy place to work.

Like the living room in your home, community, learning, and connection happen in the ICS Library Media Center.

Collection Development Policy

The ICS Library Media Center strives to meet the needs of the ICS community by maintaining a diverse collection that represents various points of view on current events, historical issues, and areas of personal, spiritual, and academic interest. We recognize our place in a changing world and endeavor to create a library and collection that addresses these changes without losing our identity as a school and in Christ. In offering the community open access to a variety of resources that express differing perspectives on global issues, we provide students with the opportunity to encounter these issues with equipped educators in a safe space from a biblical worldview.
