The Grammar and Middle School buildings each have a library. In both, a love of reading is fostered and students are given lessons in library and research skills. Both libraries contain a wealth of resources for fun and informative reading as well as academic research materials for students and faculty. Computers and printers are available in both libraries. The students use an online library catalog which is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection. The online catalog provides direct links to e-books which can be viewed at home or at school. The library also subscribes to the online World Book Encyclopedia which can be accessed from home or school through the link below.
