New Books in the Library

Library FAQs

How many books are in the library?

We have around 23,000 books of all genres: regular fiction, young adult fiction, non-fiction in all subjects, biographies, graphic novels, etc. We order new books every few weeks, but if there’s something we don’t have that you need, let us know, and we'll get it.

Does the library have textbooks?

We do have a few math and science textbooks. They’re at the 3rd floor information desk and can be checked out for one hour. You can take them out of the library if you need to.

How can I find a book using the library website?

In the search box above, simply enter your keywords, title, or author. It’s that simple! Once you’ve looked up your book, finding it in the library is easy. Ask a librarian if you need help!

How is the library organized?

The 3rd floor has all the newest selections, including fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels and youth fiction. The second floor has everything else. Non-fiction books are arranged according to the Dewey Decimal System, which assigns a range of numbers according to subject. For example, all the books on art will have call numbers in the 700’s, Literature is in the 800’s, History is in the 900’s, etc. After non-fiction we have biographies, which are alphabetical by subject. For example, if you were looking for a book on President Obama you would look in the O’s. After biography is the fiction section, which is in alphabetical order by author.

How many books are we allowed to have checked out at the same time?

As many as you want. You can keep a book for three weeks with one renewal (so total of six weeks).

Does the library have computers to use?

Yes, the library has eight desktops and 40 laptops. The desktops are on the 2nd floor; there are 20 laptops on the 3rd floor and 20 on the 2nd floor. Laptops can be checked out for one class period. You can use them in the library or take them to class, but you can’t take them out of the Upper School building. We also have printers on the 2nd floor.

Can anybody use the study rooms?

Study rooms are intended for students who need a place to study with other people. If that’s you, then you can use a study room.

Are you allowed to talk in the library?

The 3rd floor of the library tends to be a quiet space, whereas the 2nd floor tends to be a bit louder. Study rooms are available if you need a place to work with a group, but when they’re not in use, they are also good quiet spaces to go.

Are you allowed to have food and/or drinks in the library?

Snack foods are allowed in the library, such as cookies, chips, and candy, but meal foods such as pizza, hamburgers, burritos, etc. are not allowed. You’re welcome to bring water into the library in a container with a lid, but no other drinks.
