Centrally located on the Belfield Campus, it currently maintains a print collection of over 15,000 volumes and networked computers that provide students and teachers access to a variety of web-based materials, including those to which the School subscribes.
It is the goal of the library program to provide resources that will stimulate young people to be critical thinkers, to enjoy the sound of rich language, and to become life-long readers. The aim of the library curriculum is to help children feel at home in any library, and to be able to locate information in a variety of formats on whatever topic they seek.
Parents often ask what they can do to help their child in school. The answer is simple: encourage your child to read. Independent reading is intricately linked to critical thinking skills, vocabulary acquisition, writing proficiency, and overall student achievement.
