Greenwich Academy offers students and faculty a comprehensive program of library and media services in two facilities: the David W. Wallace Library for PC through Group IV and the Jean and David W. Wallace Library for Groups V through XII. The goal of the library program is to provide access to a range of resources that support the curriculum—from literature to research databases to primary source materials.
The print collections of the two libraries number approximately 30,000 volumes. In addition, the libraries provide access to a broad range of carefully selected web-based resources. Alexandria, Greenwich Academy’s online catalog, can be accessed through the library pages either on or off campus. Each library also subscribes to a variety of periodicals and newspapers to enrich the school’s diverse curriculum.
Both libraries are designed as reading and information centers for the entire school community. The libraries serve as crossroads between the school’s divisions, both physically and developmentally, with the goal of preparing students to become independent learners and lifelong readers.
