Welcome to the CAISL Library Media Center!

CAISL has two Library Media Centers, one for students in the Early Childhood through third grade and the second for students in the third through twelfth grade.

We offer the following resources for use by the entire CAISL community:

  •      print – 40,000 fiction and nonfiction books in English and Portuguese, as well as small collections in French, German and Spanish.
  •      electronic – ebooks, audio books, data bases, newspapers, magazines and encyclopedias.
  •      equipment – 18 networked computers, cameras.

Please see the sidebar of this page for links to resources organized to help you find appropriate and useful materials. There is also a link to the OPAC (online public access catalog) so you can search our resources from home. An OPAC search will give you access to ebooks, audio books, digital videos and websites as well as letting you know what print materials are available.
