The library at Mutiara International Grammar School is the centre for additional learning opportunities.
Spanning an area of approximately 3,000 square feet, the library features an impressive collection of books that caters to the interests of students and staff as well as meets the needs of the curriculum of the School.
In an effort to enhance teaching, learning and also research within the library, the area was recently expanded and extensively refurbished.
Among the new features at the library include designated shelving and study areas for students in Reception, Junior School and Senior School respectively. The purpose is to promote individual and group study as well as extra collaboration spaces for students within their year groups.
Included is a well-defined computer area which accommodates six individual computer terminals with high-speed Internet access to increase opportunities for study and research.
There is also a meeting room and private alcoves for personal studying.
These changes complement the School’s move towards fuelling more independent and creative learning within a conducive and comfortable environment.

The collection is divided into the following sections:
Easy fiction and non-fiction
