St. Thomas Aquinas has two libraries specially designed to meet the needs of the students at each campus and engage them in a life-long love of reading.
Both are inviting places that stimulate learning and encourage the joy of reading. Each weekly visit to the Lower School Library provides students with the opportunity to explore and become life-long readers. At the Upper School, students develop the skills necessary to become researchers and independent learners. Both libraries host events throughout the year, including guest readers at the Lower School, virtual and actual author visits at the Upper School, the annual Scholastic book fair, and read-a-thons. Our students and teachers are supported by a librarian at both campuses and dedicated parent volunteers.
The mission of the St. Thomas Aquinas Libraries is to foster a love of reading and to provide activities and resources that will support students and staff in becoming effective and discriminating life-long users of information.
