Library and Technology Center
The goal of the library is to provide a friendly and nurturing atmosphere conducive to academic and intellectual study as well as casual educational browsing and independent reading. Students may visit the library all through the school day. Lower school students visit the library as a class on a weekly basis. All teachers may schedule library time in order for their classes to prepare projects and to conduct research assignments.
The library strives to create an environment that motivates students to become independent seekers of knowledge and to develop a love of reading and a lifelong interest in learning.
