Library Department

Discover your library at BATCE

Our objective is to make the School Library Media Centre the heartbeat of the school community by stimulating the exploration of knowledge, the development of research in all disciplines and to facilitate the acquisition of lifelong inquiry skills.

The Library Media Centre consists of two entities:

The main library which helps with the needs of all students and members of the school community. It was modified in August 2011 to reflect a ’21st Century Information Hub for Teens’.

The 6th form library lends support to the sixth form students by providing for their academic & social needs.

At BATCE, the faculty and students can also make use of the online library – Overdrive, which is a provider of e-books. BATCE Library Media Centre is the first Library in the Caribbean to host a digital library via Overdrive. Sign in

The BATCE School Library Media Centre is also home to the Staff Book Club which is held on the fourth Thursday of every month and the Professional Learning Community which is a forum for BATCE Staff to discuss best practices and issues that promote personal and professional growth. These sessions are held on the Third Monday of every month.
