• In partnership with teachers, the Stephen C. Foster Library provides equitable access to all forms of information and empowers students to be enthusiastic readers, critical thinkers, skillful researchers, ethical users of information, and producers of ideas in a global society.

    The students visit the library as a class to check out books, conduct research, practice information literacy skills, and read independently in our inviting and cozy learning commons. Students learn from a young age of the wonders of reading.

    The library is home to a wide range of media, from traditional picture books and junior fiction, to graphic novels and e-books. The collection is chosen to match the growing interests and skills of our Lower School students. Our goal in the Lower School library is to provide a foundation for our students to love literature and learning. Librarians put together inventive activities to teach students how to search the online catalog with ease and treat the materials with respect. The time in the library not only cultivates a love for reading, but a wonderful opportunity for learning to follow directions, navigate information, and an awareness of the vast knowledge that is made available by all libraries.
