Welcome to the SSAV Knowledge Center!

The SSAV Knowledge Center helps students acquire information literacy skills and independent life-long learning habits, preparing them to be productive members of society in an increasingly globalized world. One of the main goals of the Knowledge Center is to provide materials that enrich and support the curriculum, stimulate growth in factual knowledge and literary appreciation, and promote pleasure reading. Therefore, we continually ensure that our materials appeal to a variety of interests, abilities, and backgrounds.

Our Knowledge Centeris divided into two libraries to help serve the needs of Primary, and Secondary students. Each library is fully staffed. We are open every school day, before and after school, as well as during breaks and lunch.

Be it pre-school students enjoying fun characters in their favorite new books or Secondary students conducting research through online databases, our Knowledge Center has something for everybody…
