We have four full-time librarians (one native English speaker and three native Chinese speaker) whose role is to support the staff and pupils. The librarians assist teachers and children with book selection and provide instruction in locating and using information effectively. Huili School Shanghai features two libraries: a Primary library with a collection for our younger children that promotes a love of learning and reading, as well as a Senior library with comfortable seating areas and group study rooms that provide our older children with a space to collaborate with their teachers or peers. Both spaces serve as welcoming, comfortable and quiet places for reading, studying and working.
The library is open between 07:45-16:30 during school days. Pupils are allowed to check out up to six books for two weeks at a time.
