The Saint John’s School library/media centers offer opportunities for lifelong learning and provide experiences beyond a traditional trip to the library. Each division houses their individual centers, while having access to both collections electronically. Each library offers a wide range of both print and eBooks.
Students have access to electronic databases and research materials in addition to a wide range of technology to meet their educational needs. There are two full time librarians and two full time assistants, who are available to students throughout the day and to assist with research needs. The libraries offer a variety of learning environments and resources to support different types of interactions and to promote student engagement. The Saint John’s School libraries are the heart of the school. They are constantly evolving to provide for the changing needs of the students.
In support of the libraries, the Used Book Fair is held each year and is run by volunteer parents.
