Visit the library from home!

Do you know that you can search the school library catalogue from home? You can even log in to reserve or renew books, add book reviews, video book reviews, and create a favourites list! Click here to access the webpage. To sign in you need your login details – ask the librarian for your details next time you are in the library.

You can even download the app to your phone! Seen something in a bookshop? Scan the details in your app to see if we have it in stock – if we have, you can reserve it. If we haven’t, you can send a suggestion to the librarian to buy it! Click here for the Android app . For the IOS app simply search for iMLS in the app store, and download Student IMLS.
