Library

The Library is the information hub of Summit School, an integral part of both teaching and learning.

A broad range of books and resources meet the curricular and personal needs of our students. The goals of the Library program are twofold: to encourage a life-long love of story and reading, and to help children to become wise, confident, and independent users and producers of information and media.

Library Hours
Monday - Thursday, 8:00 - 4:00
Friday, 8:00 - 3:30
