three boys reading book in library

The library is the information hub of Summit School

Our library is 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. Be sure to explore the online resources below.

Library Hours
Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 3:30 pm
