Students can also belong to the DWC’s Readers Club. We meet once a week and have “open workshop” one day a week, after school.
Our Library team encourages reading for the sheer joy of it – whether a story that transports us to other realms or a text that informs us about new ideas or perspectives. We enjoy helping students select reading that will engage and challenge them as well as improve the quality of research skills at each level of student development.
We have a substantial collection of over 15,000 books, periodicals, audio-visuals etc for students, teachers and parents. We have a wide variety of non-fiction titles selected to enhance the academic curriculum (IGCSE to IB Diploma) as well as many general interest topics. Our fiction section is equally diverse in terms of genre, reading and interest levels. Most books are in English, but we do have a range of titles in French, Spanish, Italian and Yoruba languages. We are keen for your recommendations for our purchase of new titles. Donations of high quality books are always appreciated!
Students are welcome to the library either individually before registration, break times, after school and during their non-contact periods at any time for book exchange, research or individual study time or they may be accompanied by their teachers during library periods.
We are open Monday to Saturday.
Students can borrow two books for one week.
Books can be renewed for an extra week, if a hold has not already been placed. Extra books can be checked out under certain conditions (e.g. summer reading or IB Extended Essay research). There are overdue fines for late books, but prompt return is appreciated. If books are lost they must be paid for before more books can be checked out, or for school reports or transfer records to be issued by DWC.
Our library’s easy-to-use electronic catalogue is linked to all school computers and makes title selection a simple process. Our on-line databases are also an excellent research tool; from Encyclopedias to College-level academic journal articles. All Library computers have internet access and students can save their research on USB devices or print if necessary.
Feel free to come and browse the collection. We look forward to meeting you soon.
