The library functions at the heart of the learning experience,
supporting the school’s mission, “To educate
the whole child to his/her fullest potential in preparation
for a productive and fulfilled life.”
In the spirit of fostering inquisitiveness,
the library program:
Encourages a love of reading and an
appreciation of quality literature;
Ensures that students are effective
and responsible users of information and ideas;
Equips students with the skills to
construct meaningful knowledge and understanding.
The library has a comprehensive, up-to-date
collection and a lovely space for learning, including
a Library Lab with a Smart Board and 18 computers.
Lower School students have a Library/Technology
class twice per week focusing on literature appreciation,
library use, research skills and technology skills.
They have additional scheduled time in the library for
independent study, research or reading.
Upper School students may visit the library
individually or with a class to use library resources.
The library staff is always eager to help students with
research or book recommendations. Librarians help students
learn and teachers teach! The library staff collaborates
with both Upper and Lower School faculty to teach information
literacy skills within the context of research assignments.
