The library supports both the educational and recreational reading needs of the school community. Students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade have library classes once a week. Students in Middle School can visit the library whenever needed. The library maintains an open and flexible schedule, allowing teachers the opportunity to reserve extra library or computer lab time for research projects.
Currently, there are over 23,000 books and multimedia items in the library’s circulating collection including a Parent Resource Collection.
Scholastic’s Reading Counts, a reading motivational program, is part of the curriculum that is implemented by the teachers and encouraged and coordinated by the Librarian. The program is based on reading comprehension and emphasizes the enjoyment of reading while continuing to challenge oneself to read.
Each year, in October, the Media Center & Library is converted into a book store for the annual Book Fair. This year’s Book Fair is scheduled for October 22nd – 29th and is themed “Here’s to Our Heroes, Reading Saves the Day!” It will include a super hero read by our Head and Assistant Heads of School as well as a morning event, Bagels with Dads, to give our fathers the opportunity to enjoy the book fair with their children.
