The Friends Seminary Library is dedicated to the potential of every community member as scholar, storyteller and global citizen. It is the goal of the Library to inspire, celebrate and support these overlapping pursuits. To this end, the Library offers a robust print collection of fiction and nonfiction materials, subscriptions to periodicals, research databases and other digital resources, dynamic programming in all divisions, and an inclusive, productive work space.
Our Library program focuses on building lifelong habits of reading for pleasure and academic inquiry. Librarians work closely with classroom teachers and technology integrators to help students acquire fluency in information skills that will empower them to discover, understand and enjoy using information in all its evolving dimensions. We encourage the community to explore the Library’s print collection and access digital resources by using the Library’s digital catalog and resource hub, Follett Destiny, which is available locally and remotely.
We recognize that each Library patron has individual needs and interests, so librarians work with all community members to help connect them with excellent resources. Librarians are available and happy to provide guidance, but it is ultimately the responsibility of each family to determine if and when a book is just right for their child.
