Welcome to the Library!
The Escuela Internacional Sampedrana has three libraries to serve our two campuses: the Main Library and the ECC (Early Childhood Center) Library located on the SPS campus, and the La Lima Library located on the La Lima campus. We have a little over 43,000 resources in our libraries, including fiction, nonfiction, reference, and professional books, magazines and professional journals, newspapers, eBooks, DVDs, CDs, and more.
Our online catalog, Destiny, is available for all members of our school community and can be used for various purposes: locating resources by title, subject, or author, creating and saving resource lists, reviewing specific titles for others to see, searching in databases (EBSCOhost, for example), and finding websites appropriate for students through 12th grade, to name a few.
Magazines for kids
Magazines for teens & adults
We in the EIS/EILL Libraries know that electronic resources play a great and growing role in education which is why we subscribe to several online sites. TumbleBookLibrary is an online collection of animated, talking picture books and related games which can be viewed on SMARTBoards, PCs, laptops, and most recently, on iPads. We also subscribe to BrainPOP, BrainPOP Jr. and BrainPOP en Español. BrainPOP provides animated, curriculum-based content to engage students, support educators, and bolster achievement through videos, games, writing activities, and more. All of these sites can be accessed through links here on the Library page.
We hope that you will visit one of our libraries soon. Happy reading!
