LEARNING COMMONS

Both Lower and Middle School libraries are large spaces suiting the needs of K-4 and 5-8 respectively. With reading corners, comfortable work surfaces, ready availablility of computers and large group instruction areas with interactive projection technology, the spaces accommodate learning in many forms: from guest lecturers and research-based classes to student-led clubs and "Peaceful Library" yoga meditations. On any given day, you can see students and teachers actively engaging in their learning during classes, study halls, or after-school tutorials.

  • Follett's Destiny Quest library database self-checkout
  • leveled reading library annex
