The background of this research is firstly to evaluate the current services and facilities in the secondary library since there is a plan to extend the library building among the school projects. The outcomes of this research would be good feedback for the library staff to improve its services and facilities. Secondly, some colleagues on ECIS listserv have been discussing the need for IB guidelines especially for those who due to commence the library for IB programme. This paper is not intended to be a guideline, but a sharing work to those who are concerned with the IB library to find different perspectives from a secondary school library at The British International School, Jakarta. A survey to gain feedbacks has been conducted using qualitative method. The findings and the profile of the library are discussed in the same section to help the audience understand the real situation and the feedback from the respondents about it.
