The Junior Library is mainly meant for students from Gr.2 to 5 and the Senior Library for students from Gr. 6 to 12 of AIS, and for students of the AGS. Both the libraries together have over 25,000 carefully chosen, age appropriate books, and subscribe to over 100 periodicals. In addition to books and periodicals, the libraries have a collection of DVDs/Videos, educational CD ROM databases and special resources to support the CBSE, Cambridge Lower Secondary, IGCSE, A Level & IB Programmes.
