BIFS Libraries Mission
Inspire students to love stories in any format, to spark imagination and to be empowered to learn anything they choose so that their life story makes a positive contribution.
Provide teachers with ample resources to help motivate their students to engage with their subject area.
Offer the best possible service to the BIFS learning community to help them locate materials that assist teaching and learning.
We value interpersonal connections. We aim to help students feel that they are welcome and important. We aim for an atmosphere of mutual respect for students and staff alike. We aim to partner with classroom teachers to provide the best possible learning environment for our students.
“I do believe in the power of story. I believe that stories have an important role to play
in the information of human beings, that they can stimulate, amaze and inspire their listeners.”
– Hayao Miyazaki
