Welcome to the CAJ Library
Our mission is to equip students to serve Japan and the world for Christ by supporting the educational needs of students and staff with a variety of curriculum based resources including books, periodicals and Internet access. We use a hands-on, developmental approach, moving from basic skills in the lower grades to the independent application of skills in the upper grades.
