It is the privilege of the Library Team to launch the new books collection during a “Coffee With New Books” event held last Wednesday morning, 18 April 2017.
We were thrilled to showcase the Eric Carle and Patricia Polacco collection, debuting authors of fiction books such as Dave Eggers, Maria Davana Headley, Cassandara Clare, and Pierce Brown to name a few for the fiction section. We also have multicultural titles, self-help books and numerous non-fiction materials for research.
Our esteemed faculty from the Early Years, Elementary, Middle School and High School levels graced the launch. Here are some of the snapshots during the event.

The topic of Ms. Madhu’s class on Earth science were earthquakes, plate tectonic theories, faults, and movement of earth to create mountains and valleys. The other grade level were researching on genetics and tracing their family traits. Resources from the library were compiled to give students sources of valuable information.
A separate block was dedicated to provide students a review on the use of the available online references such as Explora and EBSCO Host.
The CISM Libraries has added a new database to better serve the information needs of the school community. As mentioned before, we now have EBSCOhost to cater to your studies, research, hobbies and leisure reading. EBSCOhost is a leading research database used by hundreds of schools around the world. A world class database for our world class community.
Just get the username and password of the school from your librarians, create your own account in EBSCOhost and you’re good to go! If you need any help, just ask. Your librarians are always here to help. ^_^
Below are some of the books that you will find in EBSCOhost. Just click on the image to go the site.
