Welcome to the TIS Secondary Library


Vision Statement: The TIS Secondary Library embraces our diverse community of learners and seeks to promote intellectual freedom, reading for pleasure, and information literacy skills. We support the school mission to educate students to be internationally-minded, think creatively, reason critically, and communicate effectively. 


Mission Statement: The Secondary Library at Tashkent International School supports our academic program by providing services, resources and facilities for research, study and pleasure reading. A full-time teacher librarian is supported by a library assistant. Students and parents are encouraged to make use of the library facilities.


How to Use the Library Site

The site is organized alphabetically by topic tabs (Pleasure Reading, Research & Citations, etc.), as listed at the top of this page. For database login information, see the librarian. Dive in and have fun looking around; we add content frequently.

Online research pathfinders organize resources for convenient 24/7 access from school, home, or anywhere with an internet connection. The library also provides quick links to SAT practice sites and readers’ advisory services to help students locate good books.


The secondary library houses approximately 10,000 volumes, including non-fiction and fiction collections, periodicals, reference titles, and an audiovisual collection. The library also provides a number of databases for student research.



The librarian delights in recommending books to readers of all ages, teaches information literacy, research techniques, use of Web 2.0 tools, and provides reference services for the community. Please contact secondary librarian Susan Waterworth with questions or suggestions.


We look forward to seeing you in the library!
