The David W. Wallace Library supports the needs of the Lower School and provides an atmosphere where information skills, inquiry and information literacy are emphasized.  We seek to develop independent learners and life-long readers who contribute positively to the school and our global community.

The David W. Wallace Library collection includes approximately 8500 books and also supports digital literacy with 10 iPads that are available for use during library classes. Our online catalog, Alexandria, is a Union Catalog that allows the girls to search resources in our collection as well as the Middle/Upper School Library. In addition, a variety of databases, periodicals and reference resources are available.

The Lower School Library is available for use during the school day and regular library classes are scheduled weekly. Parents who would like to volunteer are encouraged to contact the GAPA representative.
