“The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss
The KICS Library seeks to develop life long learners and instill a love of reading in students, parents and staff. It provides resources, instruction and support, and organizes book fairs and reading incentive programs to meet these goals. The KICS community has access to close to 12,000 books, ebooks, DVDs, audio books and magazines, as well as several electronic databases including Encyclopedia Britannica and JSTOR.
Parents can set up library accounts and are encouraged to check out books not only for themselves but also to read with their kids. Reading aloud with your child is not only a wonderful way to create great memories but also an easy opportunity to improve their vocabulary, introduce them to stories from around the world and to relax together.
