The library at Ark Globe Academy is open to all students Monday to Friday from 8am - 5pm. Apart from its main function as Resource Centre, where the students can read, borrow books, complete their homework and do research on the computers, the library also serves as a safe environment for all students who feel the need to retreat to a quiet and friendly place.

All year 7-9 students have the unique opportunity of benefiting from weekly library lessons so that we can make sure they are provided with the time and resources to do some independent as well as guided reading.
