Library

 

Welcome to the ASM library page!

 

Our amazing librarians: Ms Angela, Ms Giovanna and Ms Coutras in the ASM library.

 

The library of our International School in Milan.

 

The ASM Library is a truly dynamic environment. Located at the center, or heart of the school, it is a hub for learning, socializing, and developing curiosity. The space received a full facelift in 2016 and we have enjoyed using the space in a variety of ways since then. Being a shared EC-12 Library the space is used for lessons and a variety of events. The library holds a strong collection of both print and digital resources that meet the many needs of our community. Over the past few years the ASM Library has worked to develop a collection that is a reflection of our student population. We hope that our students see themselves and their experiences in the characters, stories, and languages represented in these books. In addition to fiction books, we also hold an extensive non-fiction collection that supports both the school curriculum and student interests.
