Located in the Center for Learning, Branksome Hall Asia’s library is a whole school facility that serves as a research, reading, and creative hub.
The library offers a large collection of print and electronic resources in English, Korean, Chinese, and other mother tongue languages, and offers flexible facilities that can be used by individuals, and large and small groups. Library staff regularly assist members of our school community with research and inquiry, organize special events such as visits from authors and storytellers, and seek to inspire a love of reading.
The library is open from 8:00am to 5:30pm each school day, with the exception of early dismissal days before holidays. Residence students can access the library after hours and on weekends under the supervision of our teacher dons. The library offers access to a variety of online resources around the clock.
You can access the library’s catalog online here.
I love the Branksome Hall Asia library because it has enough desk for studying, and comfortable seats for us. Also, there are special events in the library, and I enjoy them!
Engaging in the library persuades the students to understand why we should read books, and have a conversation with librarians. Through the library and studying at Branksome Hall Asia for 2 years, I've come to like books!
All my life I've gone to the library to open my mind and escape distractions. Take a walk around the shelves and learn how to make your favorite cake, what a black hole really is, or how to survive a zombie apocalypse, all without pop up ads or useless links! It's also the place to go when you want a break from your own life-- it takes a bit of work, but the library is full of worlds that are just waiting for you to fall into them. There's no experience quite like being caught up in a good book. And our passionate librarians are just waiting to help you to find that book that will change your life, or at least take you away from it for a little while.
