    Librarians

    Information literacy is the cornerstone of our academic curriculum. When our students visit the library as a part of our lower school curriculum, they learn that intellectual curiosity is cool and the library is a fun and exciting place.

    As students progress through the lower school, our information literacy curriculum advances with them. While our youngest students are learning through active play in the library, our fourth and fifth grade students are learning to research, cite and report on information found with our extensive library resources. With our librarians serving as an extension of our teaching staff, there’s always a knowledgeable instructor available to help students with research projects.
