The Walworth Barbour American International School Library and Media Center aims to inspire students and adults alike to seek information and ideas for their educational and recreational needs.

We provide a broad range of educational materials in a variety of formats to implement, enrich, and support the educational program and curriculum of WBAIS. The Library and Media Center hosts a collection of 31,000 books, 52 popular and 50 professional magazines. The center also provides access to digital books; a wide range of online databases; DVDs, music and non-music audio files; and the center circulates a wide variety of equipment. The library sponsors programs like Elementary Library Lunches, Visiting Authors, Library Read Week and Library Technology Week.

Our goal is to meet the individual educational, emotional, and recreational needs of students and staff. In addition, we provide services and resources to WBAIS parents and the local community at large. All parents of students enrolled at WBAIS are encouraged to borrow materials from the library and to use our online sources. Individuals or families not affiliated with WBAIS who would like to use our library may do so by paying an annual membership fee. For more info, please contact us via:

The Library and Media Center is the heart of the school, and throughout the year teachers and students use our facilities for exhibitions, workshops, and student work displays.
