BST students reading books at BST Library

Visitors often remark on the strong reading culture at BST.  With their natural curiosity and thirst for adventure, our students are world travellers, even when doing so through the pages of a book in the comfort of a library chair.

The fundamental importance of reading in the personal and intellectual development of our students is reflected in the library provision at BST. 

As warm and welcoming spaces at the heart of both the Shibuya and Showa campuses, students are drawn to the libraries for times of quiet contemplation, animated discussion and the magical pursuit of reading.  Open a book and you can travel anywhere!


Students and Parents can also access resources online via our ebook service ePlatform, and thousands of digital periodicals through JStor and PressReader to which we subscribe.
If you haven’t already signed up for an ebook account, please contact our Librarians and instructions and passwords can be given;
