The Suriname International School library is a very dynamic part of our school. We use Follett library software, which is one of the leaders in learning management systems among most international schools as well as public schools in North America. We receive three periodicals monthly: National Geographic for Kids, Highlights, and Family Fun, which supplement the many books, DVDs, and CDs that the library has. The library has also educational manipulative materials as well as a puzzle center, board games, and activity books.

Each classroom has a scheduled library hour once a week during which they engage in a variety of activities. We also exchange on different cultural celebrations: Divali, Halloween, Hanukkah, Chinese New Year, and others. We feel very fortunate that embassies and religious groups come and share with our students about the traditions of their celebrations.

The SIS library, in partnership with local bookstores, hosts the annual SIS Book Fair, where community partners come to support the literacy mission of the library.
