Concordia International School Ningbo (CISN) aims for our students to develop their linguistic abilities in both English and Chinese independently. Our fully stocked and staffed library is a place where students can access information in both languages, and it has a full range of graded reader books and special extension programs. Each grade level has an extensive range of materials from songbooks to poetry, and fiction to fantasy. Subject-related books and more nuanced choices are available as the students advance through the grades. Our additional library-based reading programs encourage students to read for pleasure and fluency, while allowing students to apply the strategies they have learned in class. At CISN, we encourage students and their parents to borrow from the rich choice of resources our library has to offer.
